MARCH 1980 

on Business 

Perhaps the most neglected area 
of Southern history is its business 
history, and a remedy for that 
will begin with the First Annual 
Sewanee Economics Symposium 
April 3-5. The theme for the 
symposium is "Business in the 
New South: A Historical Perspec- 

Marvin E. Goodstein, professor 
of economics and coordinator for 
the symposium, said Sewanee is 
taking a lead in the historical 
study because little research has 
been done in Southern business 
history (though southerners are 
interested in other aspects of 
their history), and because busi- 
ness history itself shows signs of 
expanding significantly. 

Panels are being formed with 
academic persons in economics, 
history, and business, business 
persons who have access to valu- 
able records, and archivists and 

Professor Goodstein said he 
expects the symposium will answer 
a need for more study in business 
history. Also, it is expected to 
generate additional interest in busi- 
ness history and generate coopera- 
tion between the business and 
university communities. 

Panels are being formed to 
discuss four aspects of business in 
the South— the early problems, the 
modern successes, the future, and a 
cooperative approach to preserving 
the records of Southern business. 
The panel chairmen include 
Jeremy Atack of the University of 
Illinois, Albert Niemi of the Uni- 
versity of Georgia, Fred Bateman 
of Indiana University and the 
University of the South, and Robert 
Lovett, curator of manuscripts and 
archives for Harvard Business School. 

Professor Goodstein will chair 
a concluding panel on unresolved 

Among the businessmen attend- 
ing are W..T. Beebe, chairman of 
the board of Delta Airlines, and 
Bernard A. Monaghan, chairman of 
the executive committee and chief 

executive officer of Vulcan Ma- 
terials Company. 

The symposium will begin with 
registration at the Bishop's Com- 
mon April 3. A reception will be 
held at the Common at 5 p.m. A 

banquet will begin at 6.30 at Sewa- 
nee Inn. All symposium sessions 
will be held in Guerry Auditorium. 
A minimal registration fee is 
necessary for admission. 

Mr. Goodstein said he expects 
approximately 150 visitors. Busi- 
ness persons are being asked to 
talk about their experiences and 
apply those to what they believe 
the future holds. 



Despite declining enrollment and 
annual deficits for the College 
Summer School, an administration 
proposal to end summer classes 
lias been set aside for at least one 

On the recommendation of a 
faculty committee, classes will be 
held this summer to permit further 
study of the proposal. 

A Sewanee summer, with its 
particularly small classes and 
outdoor opportunities, offers 
many of the traditional quali- 
ties of the Mountain in super- 

College Summer School 
(June 15 to July 26) may be 
of particular interest to enter- 
ing college freshmen, whether 
they plan to attend Sewanee 
or another college in the fall, 
and non-Sewanee students 
who would like a change of 

Interested persons should 
notify Frederick H. Croom, 
associate professor of mathe- 
matics and this year's summer 
school director. 

Professor Croom said the 
policy of offering courses 
most in demand will again be 
in effect. Therefore, prospec- 
tive students should write him 
of their interests as soon as 

Freshman courses will be 
offered in English, biology, 
economics, history, math, phi- 
losophy, psychology, political 
science, and religion. In addi- 
tion there will be offerings in 
beginning drawing, mythology, 
and astronomy, and a seminar 
in securities and investments. 

Aside from freshman and 
sophomore courses, upper di- 
vision courses are expected to 
be provided in French, Span- 
ish, English, history, and or- 
ganic chemistry. 

Sewanee will have its usual 
recreational luxuries— golf ten- 
nis, hiking, horseback riding, 
and swimming. Regular social 
gatherings of faculty and stu- 
dents are part of the spice of 
Sewanee. , 

The cost is $99 a semester 
hour, plus $138 for room and 
$270 for meals. 

In a straw vote last semester, 
the faculty voted overwhelmingly 
in favor of maintaining summer 
classes. The problem facing the 
administration, however, is an 
annual loss that was estimated last 
summer to be $12,680. 

Dean John Webb said the loss 
of money may be the least import- 
ant part of the problem, though 
the "deficit" may be a symptom of 
other trends. 

"We have a situation in which 
students are either not as interested 
in summer school as they once were 
or they can find cheaper summer 
schools near their homes where 
they can also get jobs," he said. 

Since there has always been an 
attempt to keep the summer school 
self-sustaining, declining revenue 
has usually been answered by 
paring classes and faculty. 

Dean Webb said the alternative 
would be to establish a program 
that would be more attractive to 
the wider public as well as to regu- 
lar students. 

The concept is alive today in 
the annual Sewanee Summer Semi- 
nar. Dean Webb also mentioned the 
possibility of parallel programs, 
such as a summer-long workshop 
in theatre arts to accompany the 
Summer Music Center. 

New Faculty 
in College 

Among new faculty in the second 
semester are Fred Bateman, Ken- 
nedy Distinguished Professor of 
Economics, and 'Wallace Fowlie", 
Brown Foundation Fellow and pro- 
fessor of French. Charles Brian 
Cox of the University of Manches- 
ter is Brown Foundation Fellow 
and visiting professor of English. 

Replacing Timothy Keith-Lucas 
during his sabbatical is Stephen C. 
Wilhite, instructor in psychology. 
Teaching part-time in the English 
department to fill in for sabbaticals 
of William Clarkson and Dale 
Richardson is Carta Mazzini, assis- 
tant professor of English. 

Dr. Fowlie recently retired 
from Duke University after 14 
years as James B. Duke Professor 
of French. Educated at Harvard, he 
has also taught at Yale, the Univer- 
sity of Chicago, and Bennington 

Dr. Bateman has been teaching 
at Indiana University since 1964 in 
the business economics department, 
and is chairman of the department's 
doctoral program. He is an editorial 
board member of Business Horizons, 
The Business History Review, and 
Review of Economic and Business 
Research. He has been a visiting 
lecturer at the London School of 

Economics and at Purdue Univer- 
sity. A native of New Orleans, he 
has B.A. and Ph.D. degrees from 
Tulane University and his M.A. is 
from the University of North 

Dr. Cox is the author of a num- 
ber of books of criticism of modern 
literature including studies of Dylan 
Thomas and Joseph Conrad. He has 
been co-editor of Critical Quarterly 
since 1959. He received his under- 
graduate and graduate degrees from 
Pembroke College, the University 
of Cambridge, and is presently 
John Edward Taylor Professor of 
English Literature at the University 
of Manchester. 

Dr. Mazzini has a B.A. from 
Holy Names College in Oakland, 
California, and a Ph.D. from the 
University of North Carolina. She 
formerly taught at Bradford College 
in Massachusetts, is the author of 
an article on Thoreau's poetry, and 
assisted in compiling bibliography 
for Lewis Leary's Articles on 
American Literature. She is the 
wife of John McCarthy of the 
political science department. 

Mr. Wilhite is a graduate of 
Emory University. He won a 
Marshall Scholarship to study at 
Oxford, where he tutored part- 
time in psychology and is a Ph.D. 
candidate. He is the author of 
several papers in psychological 

Rhodes Rank 

Six Sewanee students were selected 
in December for state interviews 
in the Rhodes Scholarship competi- 
tion, and while none went on for 
the finals this year, it is notable that 
as many as six were interviewed at 
the state level. 

These students include Steffany 
Ellis of Chattanooga; Peggy Barr 
of Huntsville, Alabama; William 
(Woody) Register of Evergreen, 
Alabama; Emily Fuhrer of Alexan- 
dria, Louisiana; Minna Dennis of 
Atlanta, Georgia, arid Frank Grim- 
ball of Charleston, South Carolina. 

For the period from 1945 to 
the present, the University ranks 
12th nationally among all universi- 
ties and colleges in total production 
of Rhodes Scholars. No other 
Southern institution has had more. 
Among liberal arts colleges, Se- 
wanee ranks second nationally to 
Reed College in Oregon, and in 
rankings based on percentage of 
enrollment, Sewanee ranks first in 
the nation.

and professor of French 

College Bowl 

Sewanee's College Bowl team took 
a thoroughly creditable fifth place 
in the recent five-state Region V 
Bowl Tournament Championships 
in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

The University of North Caro- 
lina placed first among 21 other 
colleges and universities. Vander- 
bilt was second and was followed 
by East Carolina University and 

Sewanee, which took several 
individual victories, was first beaten 
by East Carolina and was elimi- 
nated near the end of the com- 
petition by the Vanderbilt team. 
Both Sewanee and Davidson, like 
other small colleges, found them- 
selves somewhat at a disadvantage 
against graduate university teams 
which may include up to two 
graduate students. 

Sewanee's team was composed 
of Michael Albert, a senior music 
major from Sewanee; John Melton, 
a senior , chemistry major from 
Tampa, Florida; Keith Sutton, a 
junior biology major from Nash- 
ville, and Robert Ross, a senior 
biology major from Fort Thomas, 


"The Classical Heritage in the 
Middle Ages" is the theme for this 
year's Sewanee Mediaeval Collo- 
quium, to be held April 11 and 12. 

Principal speakers are Marie- 
Therese d'Alverny of Paris, James 
McEvoy of Belfast, George Stricevie 
of Cincinnati, and Fred C. Robin- 
son of Yale University. 

Mme. d'Alverny is emerita, 
Centre National de la Recherche 
Scientifique, Paris, and Centre 
d'Etudes Superieures de Civilisa- 
tion Medievaie, Poitiers. Her field 
is the history of philosophy and 
science, and she will speak on the 
inheritance and development of 
cosmology and physica in the 
early Middle Ages. 

Mr. McEvoy is professor of 
scholastic philosophy at the Queen's 
University in Belfast. His talk will 
be on medieval theories of friend- 
ship and their dependence on the 
classical tradition. 

Mr. Stricevie is professor of art 
history at the University of Cin- 
cinnati and his talk will be in that 
area. Mr. Robinson's field is Old 

The growing importance of the 
Sewanee Mediaeval Colloquium has 
oeen drawing a capacity attendance 
iom this country and Canada, and 
about 20 papers will be presented, 
selected by a screening committee 
from those submitted in advance. 

WUTS Plans 

Sewanee's student radio station, 
WUTS, has applied to the Federal 
Communications Commission to 
increase its broadcasting power 
from 10 watts to 150 watts. 

This is part of an overall plan to 
upgrade the station's programming. 

While currently able to reach 
only as far as Cowan at the foot of 
the mountain in good weather, 
WUTS will penetrate Winchester 
and Monteagle if power is increased. 

Mark Andrews, the station 
manager, said the FCC gave urgency 
to WUTS plans when it ruled that 
as of this past January 1, no 10-watt 
station would be able to apply for 
increased power. A ruling on the 
application is not expected before 
next fall. 

WUTS meets the FCC program- 
ming requirements for an educa- 
tional station, but Andrews said 
the educational material will be 
doubled or tripled within a year or 
two. More programs will be pro- 
duced at the University, enhancing 
good community relations at 

The station will continue to be 
operated by student volunteers. 

SSMC Nears 
24th Season 

One seldom finds more intensity 
and dedication among students 
than appears during the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center. 

The five-week program for 
orchestral instrumentalists, with 
concerts scheduled each weekend, 
will be held from June 21 through 
July 27. 

Membership requires a mini- 
mum age of 12 and sufficient tech- 
nical ability to participate in en- 
sembles and orchestras. There is no 
upper age limit. 

Martha McCrory, director of 
the center for most of its 24 
seasons, has once again gathered 
a group of outstanding faculty 
members from throughout the 

The center will have three full 
symphony orchestras: the Sewanee 
Symphony for advanced students, 
the Cumberland Orchestra for those 
with less previous experience, and 
the Sewanee Festival Orchestra for 
faculty, staff, and selected students. 
All students become totally in- 
volved with chamber music, orches- 
tra work, private study, theory, 
and concerts. 

In addition the SSMC String 
Camp will be held June 22 through 
June 29 at the Sewanee Academy. 
The String Camp is open to very 
young string students, ages 10 to 12. 

Alumni and friends of Sewanee 
are urged to inform talented 
young musicians in their areas 
about the Music Center. Miss 
McCrory says such help will be 

much appreciated. She also noted 
that although the minimum age 
for enrollment is 12, the average - 
student is of high school or col- 
lege age. The college division 
grows larger each year as hope- 
ful young professionals learn of 
the exceptional training available. 

In many places around the 
world, the name "Sewanee" 
means music, due to the Music 

"We urge you to keep up with 
the Music Center. Come and hear 
us in the summer, and send us 
some fine young students," Miss 
McCrory said. 

Information pertaining to 
the Music Center— application 
forms, the String Camp, and the 
concert series— may be obtained 
by writing the Sewanee Summer 
Music Center in Sewanee or by 
calling Miss McCrory. 

Hospital Head 

Paul K. Hagan, Jr. is the new ad- 
ministrator of Emerald -Hodgson 
Hospital, appointed by the manage- 
ment team of Southern Health 
Services, Inc. 

Mr. Hagan, a native of Chatta- 
nooga, comes to Sewanee from 
Fairburn, Georgia just south of 
Atlanta, where he was administrator 
of a new 120-bed nursing home. His 
extensive experience also includes 
being administrator of Meriwether 
Memorial Hospital and Nursing 
Home in Warm Springs, Georgia. 

He is a graduate of the Univer- 
sity of Tennessee at Chattanooga, 
where he majored in chemistry and 
biology. He has a master's degree 
in health care administration from 
Central Michigan University and 
did doctoral work at Walden Uni- 
versity in Naples, Florida. 

He and his wife, the former 
Elizabeth Ann Pope, have three 

I Stimulating 
Seminar '80 

The Sewanee Summer Seminar will 
be continuing its popular combi- 
nation of study and recreation 
again this summer. All ages of 
adults and children, alumni and 
non-alumni, have enjoyed the 
varied offerings of the week-long 
program in summers past. 

. Seminar director Edwin Stirling, 
associate professor of English, has 
% another such event planned for 
July 13-19. The format, with a 
lecture in the morning followed by 


coffee and discussion, lunch to- 
gether in the dining hall, and outings 
or free time in the afternoons, will 
be the same as in previous years, 
having proved a most successful 
mix of programmed and free time. 
Among regular University fac- 
ulty on the staff is Gilbert Gilchrist, 
professor of political science, who 
will wear two hats as a pundit on 
the 1980 presidential elections and 
also on securities and investments. 
Richard O'Connor, assistant profes- 
sor of anthropology, will present 
"Humanizing the Social Sciences," 
a discussion of how an anthro- 
pologist studies a culture by 
participating in it. He will show 
anthropological films as part of his 

Douglas Paschall, assistant pro- 
fessor of English and associate 
dean of the College, will discuss 
"New Wine in Old (but Well- 
Wrought) Urns," an examination 
of how new methods of literary 
criticism have altered our under- 
standing of some "classic" English 

Harry Yeatman, professor of 
biology, will give a talk called "The 
Biologist and the Archeologist," 
accompanied by slides and artifacts, 
to illuminate the lives of various 
American Indian cultures of the 
past. Assistant professor of history 
Charles Perry's talk will be "England 
in the Post-Imperial Age." He will 
examine England's decline as a 
world power with emphasis on 
implications for other countries. 

The cost of the week for tuition, 
a room in Malon Courts dormitory, 
and meals at Gailor dining hall is 
$225. Room and board only, for 
family members of seminar par- 
ticipants who may wish just to 
vacation in Sewanee at the time, is 
$140, and tuition only, for those 
with their own arrangements for 
room and board, is $95. 

Free babysitting in the evenings 
is a feature, as is a lively free day 
care program for children age three 
and. up. The children's program 
has included in past years such 
entertainment as swimming, games, 
crafts, and visits to the University 
stables and observatory. There will 
also be family outings in the 

Possible leisure time activities 
are trips to local caves or a movie 
in the evening; not to be missed are 
concerts of the Sewanee Summer 
Music Center which will be present- 
ed on Saturdays and Sundays 
during July. Exploration of the 
surrounding mountains, reading, 
sports, or just resting are further

and Women 

The "Sewanee gentleman" is as 
much a tradition at the University 
as academic gowns and Gothic 
architecture. Now, after ten years 
of women on the Mountain, what 
about the "Sewanee lady"? 

Who is she? What does she do? 
How is she making a difference in 
our society? 

The Seventh Annual Sewanee 
Conference on Women will be 
dealing with these questions and 
providing a backdrop for a Sewanee 

The conference, entitled 
"Women: Choosing Success," is 
being held the weekend of March 
14-16 in conjunction with an 
alumnae weekend. 

Panel discussions will involve 
faculty, students, and alumnae in 
almost every occupation imaginable, 
from housekeeping to medicine to 

The keynote speaker will be 
Elaine Musselman, a partner and 
managing director of the oldest 
insurance company in Kentucky, 
Harris and Company of Louisville. 
She is also a partner in Skillmakers, 
Inc., whose "models and mentors 

program" brings together career 
women and high school students in 
"goal seminars." 

The coordinators, Rose Mary 
Drake, a College senior, and Bar- 
bara Hall, the assistant to the 
chaplain, estimate that about 150 
alumnae are returning to Sewanee 
for the conference. Ample time will 
be provided for students and for- 
mer students to meet and talk on 
a personal basis. 

The coordinators say they are 
pleased at the way news of the 
conference has spread by word-of- 
mouth as well as through various 

"People-'kept calling us on the 
phone," said Mrs. Hall. "They had 
heard about it from a friend and 
wanted to know more." 

This year's conference promises 
to be a real treat, with more variety 
and distinction among alumnae than 
ever before— a real tribute to the 
excellence of the graduates and 
students of Sewanee.

The Subject Was Failure 

His subject was failure. It's not the 
usual topic for a well-known 
Sewanee graduate, especially talent- 
ed Kyle Rote, Jr., C'72. 

Kyle returned to Sewanee in 
February and gave a talk to the 
Student Christian Fellowship and 
the Fellowship of Christian Ath- 
letes. The talk was his first at 
Sewanee since his graduation, 
though he has returned frequently, 
and the crowd filled the large 
lounge of the Bishop's Common. 

Kyle recounted stories of his 
own career, touching especially on 
the relativeness of failure and 
success, the struggle to maintain 
perspective in the face of consider- 
able adulation. 

If he had been living in Jeru- 
salem at the time of the crucifixion 
of Jesus, Kyle admitted he would 
have thought, "Gee, he had a good 
idea, too bad he failed." 

One of the most moving points 
of his talk was made as he spoke of 
his experience at Sewanee. Despite 
his visible success as an athlete and 
student, he said he made few lasting 
friendships. The reason, he said, 
was that he had known almost no 
one on a spiritual basis. 

He said he was pleased to see 
the efforts and activities of the 
Student Christian Fellowship and 
the FCA. 

The meeting broke up slowly 
in the late hours, and Kyle. slipped 
away to Chattanooga and a flight 
home to Houston. 

Cadet Prayer 

Mrs. Edmund Kirby-Smith has 
brought to our attention that the 
cadet prayer of the U. S. Military 
Academy at West Point was written 
by a Sewanee alumnus, the late 
Clayton E. Wheat, C'04, T*18. 
Chaplain Wheat was at West Point 
when Mr. Kirby-Smith was there 
in 1939, and he died in 1970. 

Because of the .Sewanee ties 
of Chaplain Wheat and the great 
influence of his prayer, we are 
publishing it here, believing it will 
be of interest and-eomfort to many. 

O God, our Fkther, Thou searcher 
of Men's hearts, help us to draw near to 
Thee in sincerity and truth. May our 
religion be filled with gladness and may 
our worship of Thee be natural. 

Strengthen and increase our admira- 
tion for honest dealing and clean thinking, 
and suffer not our hatred of hypocrisy 
and pretence ever to diminish. Encourage 
us in our endeavor to live above the 
common level of life. Make us to choose 
the harder right instead of the 

At alcohol/drug workshop. 

Endow us with courage that is born of 
loyalty to all that is noble and worthy, 
that scorns to compromise with vice and 
injustice and knows no fear when truth 
and right are in jeopardy. Guard us 
against flippancy and irreverence in the 
sacred things of life. Grant us new ties of 
friendship and new opportunities of 
service. Kindle our hearts in fellowship 
with those of a cheerful countenance, and 
soften our hearts with sympathy for 
those who sorrow and suffer. Help us to 
maintain the honor of the Corps un- 
tarnished and unsullied and to show forth 
in our lives the ideals of West Point in 
doing our duty to Thee and to our 
Country. All of which we ask in the name 
of the Great Friend and Master of men. 

Alcohol and Drug Workshop 

About 60 persons who work with 
students in private schools in Ten- 
nessee participated in a five-day 
workshop held at Sewanee in De- 
cember. .The very intense program, 
led by specialists in their field, 
demonstrated techniques of inter- 
vention and treatment of alcohol 
and drug abuse. Those techniques 
are being highly acclaimed for their 

The workshop was sponsored 
by the' University chaplaincy and 
funded by a grant from the Lynd- 
hurst Foundation of Chattanooga.

Exterior Decorating 

The joke may still be fresh enough 
to tell: When the development 
office moved into Thompson Hall, 
some students, noticing the efforts 
to improve the landscaping, planted 
a pair of plastic flamingos on the 
lawn— just in time for opening 

The students probably never 
realized how successful they had 
been with the joke. Shortly after 
the flamingos appeared, a complain- 
ing telephone call was received in 
the vice-chancellor's office, and 
others, even students, stopped in to 
bemoan the poor taste of the 
development office and administra- 
tion. Tell us Sewanee doesn't 
sometimes take itself too seriously. 

Historical Quarterly 

The first 38 pages, not counting the 
cover, of the most recent Tennessee 
Historical Quarterly (winter 1979) 
contain two papers by Sewaneeans. 

The cover was a color photo- 
graph of Breslin Tower, the proper 
send-off for "Sewanee Then and 
Now," a most interesting article by 
Arthur Ben Chitty. 

It is a recounting of a part of 
Sewanee history familiar to many 
of us. But Dr. Chitty has a way of 
adding sparkling tidbits fished from 
the depths of the archives. 

While discussing Breslin Tower, 
he writes: "Breslin's best hour may 

have been at the turn of the cen : 
tury when a group of students 
known as Anchovies staged a full- 
course, formal dinner on its top. All 
appeared in tuxedos, the moon was 
full, and service, including wines 
and cigars, was provided by a pulley 
and hoist from the ground a hun- 
dred feet below." 

Unfortunately we do not have 
the room to describe here the 
demise of the Anchovies. Reprints 
of the article may be purchased 
at St. Luke's Book Store for $2. 
(Add $1.09 for postage and 

The second article, by Anita 
Goodstein, professor of history, is 
"Black History on the Nashville 
Frontier." Professor Goodstein is 
currently writing an antebellum 
history of Nashville. The project 
is being sponsored by the National 
Endowment for the Humanities. 

Gone West 

Ten Sewaneeites- students, faculty 
and staff— under the sponsorship 
of the Sewanee Outing Club, 
journeyed to Texas' Big Bend 
National Park over Christmas 
vacation. They took on the rapids 
in the Rio Grande's Mariscal and 
Santa Elena Canyons in Outing 
Club canoes, camped out, climbed 
mountains, and enjoyed the famous 
cactus-and-rock scenery which was 
new to all but one of the party. 

Doug Cameron, A'65, director 
of student programs, shared his 
Whitewater expertise with the 
novice canoeists and all got through 
the canyons safely, if not in total 
dryness. Amy Waller, C'82, of San 
Antonio was the advance scout and 
made friends with the rangers while 
waiting for the rest of the group to 
arrive. She and her truck also did 
yeoman duty ferrying drivers from 
canoe landing points back to the 
van and trailer. 

Impressive to the Tennesseans 
were the distances- by highway and 
jeep road- the quiet, the clearness 
of the stars, and the distance from 
which far-away mountains are 
visible. The food— cooked by the 
campers on a Coleman stove- also 
drew raves. "Why can't Gailor do

was the unanswered question. 

Richard Parrott, C'82, will be 
long remembered for his chili and 
his eight-foot amoeba; Henrietta 
Croom, assistant professor of

Suzan Carlile for their unsinkability 
despite repeated dunkings; Tim 
Keith-Lucas, assistant professor of 
psychology, for shooting the worst 
rapid backwards; Gale Link, direc- 
tor of information services, for 
popular cornbread and spectacular 
entanglement of her canoe in an 
overhanging tree, Joanna Fitts,

Even some loose horses wandered 
through camp in the middle of 
Santa Elena Canyon, bound for 
their own inscrutable destination. 

The weather cooperated, with 
warm sunny days and cool nights, 
except for the one overnight on the 
river, tents left behind. It rained, 
disturbing campers' sleep with 
thoughts of flash floods (which 
didn't materialize). Two people 
slept under overturned canoes; the 
other eight slept under one ten- 
foot tarp, with feet in each other's 
faces. Later a dip in the hot springs 
at 104 degrees was a welcome 

The journey (four days of hard 
driving there and back) was en- 
hanced by overnight stops at the 
homes of Cathy Potts, C'79, and 
Joanna Fitts. Another overnight 
was at the beautifully restored 
mission-style building of the Dio- 
cesan Center in San Antonio, 
thanks to the generosity of the 
bishop and the intercession of - 
Amy's parents, the Rev. and Mrs. 
Clifford Waller. Further entertain- 
ment in San Antonio included 
a Mexican dinner, a visit to the 
Alamo, a walk along the Paseo del

Thus the era of women students 
at Sewanee began under the watch- 
ful, good-humored pen of Gene 
Ham, C'70 (Sewanee Purple Sep- 
tember 26, 1969). Ham called it the 
"second reconstruction at Sewanee." 

Others were less glib. The '60s 
were full of disgusting issues and 
ideas- the draft and draft dodgers, 
segregation and racial mixing, stu- 
dent rights and student radicals. 
The subject of women at Sewanee 
was just a part of the gallimaufry, 
and some thought it was the vixen 
to rouse the hounds. 

Printed elsewhere in this issue 
is a Cap and Gown editorial from 
1883, providing evidence that co- 
education was rtot a newborn con- 
cept on the Mountain in the '60s. 

Still, if it was not an innocent 
babe, no one seemed to pay it 
much mind until 1967 when the 
possibility of women students was 
nudged into maturity by a few 
hardy trustees who, in a manner of 
speaking, had their ears to the 

In those restless years, Sewa- 
nee 's pool of eligible college appli- 
cants had been shrinking, and the 
morale among the students (all 
males, of course) had become 
increasingly gaunt. One can imagine 
that the siren voices of those other 
disruptive movements of the '60s 
were having their insidious and 
seductive effects on the usually 
sublimated Sewanee campus. Given 
that, it might be assumed that this 
faddish chimera, the idea of women 
at Sewanee, would evaporate when 
the war was over and students got 

back to the full-time business of 

Coeducation was on the minds 
of many when the trustees met in 
1967, but no action was taken. 
Gilbert Gilchrist, a faculty trustee 
at the time, recalls that a lot of 
politicking went on that year. 
Other factors began to play their 
parts- as a matter of principle, 
church leaders were concerned 
about the exclusion of half the 
church membership. There was 
opposition on the Mountain, but 
the great majority of the faculty 
favored cpeducation. 

In the year that followed, the 
debate intensified mostly behind 
the scenes. John Ransom, then 
admissions director, personally 
solicited the regents and trustees 
about the need to admit women. 
Such a move, he said, would not 
only increase the applicant pool 
with eligible women but would 
improve the chances of attracting 
male students. 

Gaston Bruton, the provost, 
wrote a lengthy, detailed essay for 
the Sewanee News before his 
retirement in 1968, a lecture that 
contained a wealth of research data 
and a challenge for the University. 

". . .1 feel we need to ask, and 
to answer, a serious question," 
Mr. Bruton wrote. "Is it possible 
for a private liberal arts college, for 
men only, not to grow in size, not 
to accept government aid, to adopt 
a 10:1 student-teacher ratio, and to 
survive? My answer is NO. The six 
implied limitations are too many." 

The three limitations Bruton 
said should be removed were "to 
remain a college for men, not to 
grow, and to have a teacher for 
every ten students." The essay is 
still remembered on campus for the 
effect it had. 

With a mixture of loyalties 
vying for attention like complain- 
ing dogs, minor events seemed to 
carry weight: The dean of a Georgia 
women's college spoke on an EQB 

served as a trustee during the period 1965-70 and the 
most important decision the board was called upon to 
make during this time was whether to admit women. Those who 
represented the faculty and most of the laymen were in favor 
of doing so. However, at the annual meeting of 1967, which 
was my first experience with high ecclesiastical politics, the 
vice-chancellor and Bishop Juhan were strongly opposed to the 
idea, and Bishop Juhan succeeded in defeating the motion by 
advising us that to do so would jeopardize a two million dollar 
gift to Sewanee. Of course, this slowed all of us down consider- 
ably but it made several trustees, including me, determined 
to force the issue at the next annual meeting. 

Consequently, in 1968, after we asked Bishop Juhan 
whether the University had received the two million dollar 
grant and a few other pertinent questions about it, we reversed 
the decision of 1967 and opened the doors to women students. 

A good bit of spade work was done before the 1968 
meeting, and I recall working closely with Scott Bates of the 
faculty and several others. We were elated at the outcome, 
and from all I have been able to hear and read, it was the right

panel and quieted some fears about 
the impact coeducation would 
have on traditions. 

Vice-Chancellor Edward 
McCrady had been speaking for 
some years of establishing a second 
college at Sewanee. As 1968 ap- 
proached he began to see the 
second college, with a separate 
campus, as a way of bringing 
women students to Sewanee while 
keeping the all-male tradition o'f 
the College of Arts and Sciences. 
The concept, while attractive in the 
light of European tradition and 
occasional Eastern precedents, 
never gained more than a toe-hold 
on the Mountain. 

Mr. Bruton's paper recalled a 
decision made by the University 

in 1962 to increase the number of 
students "to 1,200 or 1,500-1,600 
including women." Yet for several 
consecutive years the enrollment 
had not increased. 

Therefore, when the trustees 
assembled on June 9, 1968, there 
was nothing to indicate the result 
would be any different from what 
it had been in 1967. Thomas H. 
Pope, an attorney and trustee from 
Greenville, South Carolina, be- 
came the floor leader of the pro- 
coeducation "faction" 1 and girded 
himself for a fight. But Scott Bates, 
a faculty trustee, remembers that 
Pope was to be disappointed. The 
bastions fell so quickly that most 
everyone was taken by surprise. 
Debate was almost non-existent. 

Women are no longer an afterthought at Sewanee. They 
now comprise over 40 percent of the student body. 
They major in almost every discipline, not just in English, 
biology, and foreign languages as one seer predicted in the fall 
of 1969. Their grade point average remains strong, although the 
gap between the women's and men's averages has been 
decreasing since the abolition in 1976 of an enforced admissions 
ratio. The most recent Dean's List once again includes a more 
than proportionate percentage of women. Large numbers of 
women go on to graduate and professional schools. Lawyers 
abound, with graduates from M.B.A. programs a close second. 
There is less sureness about opportunities in the business world, 
perhaps because of the lack of an "old girl" network, arid the 
proportion of women among Sewanee's graduates entering 
medical school remains far below the national average of 25 

Women enthusiastically participate in every area of campus 
life. They no longer hesitate to run for top leadership positions. 

The women's athletic program has expanded considerably 
since its tentative beginning ten years ago, largely because 
female athletes have insisted that they enjoy and are good at 
sports, and that they deserve competent coaching, adequate 
facilities, and equal support. 

Sewanee's female students and graduates believe that they 
can compete on an equal basis with men in the classroom. Yet 
the research of Elizabeth Tidball, Martina Homer, and most 
recently the Brown Study, indicate that women in coeducational 
institutions tend to underestimate their abilities, to have lower 
aspirations than men. Unlike their counterparts at women's 
colleges Sewanee students have relatively few female professors 
and administrators to set an example for them. Sewanee can 
guard against this tendency by making a conscious effort to 
provide more contact with female role models, continued 
opportunities for leadership, equally serious counseling about 
professional and graduate schools and prestige scholarships, 
an alumni network to find job openings, and representation on 
the Alumni Association, Board of Trustees, and Board of 

In their brief ten years on the Mountain, women have 
undeniably demonstrated that they too want and benefit from 
the rare and precious kind of education that is only found at 
a school like Sewanee, where classes are small, personal con- 
tacts with professors are possible, and sound learning in the 
liberal arts is valued. Let us continue to respond to the new 
trust we assumed ten years ago with care, enthusiasm, and 

Mary Susan Cushman 
Dean of women, 

Sewanee became a reality for me in 1969 and so did the 
problems of a resentful male student body over the 
advent of women into University life. The demise of the all 
male choir was heralded by many as the day of doom for 
Sewanee. Jokes and campus humor were meant for all male 
ears and party weekend plans revolved around the arrival of the 
bus from Sullins. 

It was a time for young women to toughen up and 
remember Sewanee's past before becoming too critical of her 
present. On looking back, the years were great preparation for 
my future as a woman in business. It has been an easy transition 
from one male dominated environment to another!

The resolution was presented 
from committee by the Rev. James 
R. (Knox) Brumby III, C'48, T'51. 
After appropriate 'whereases," the 
final resolution stated, ". . .that the 
Board of Trustees do empower and 
request the Board of Regents and 
the Vice-Chancellor to plan and 
provide for the admission of quali- 
fied women students in the fall of 

The administration had already 
cautioned that there was not 
enough time to prepare for women 
by 1969. The partial answer was to 
pare away at the number of women 
students to be admitted the first 
year, but the vice-chancellor 
stepped in. If Sewanee were going 
to accept women into the College 
of Arts and Sciences, it should 
accept more than a token number- 
enough at least that the new stu- 
dents would not feel totally 

The number of requests for 
applications doubled by the fall of 
1968, 1,170 from men and 170 
from women. The administration 
became occupied with making a 
place for young ladies. There was 
no time, of course, to prepare 
separate campuses and dining halls. 
Benedict Hall was to be the first 
women's dormitory. Hoffman, 
from necessity,, would become the 
first coed dorm, a bright little item 
not well publicized. 

The Sewanee Purple, after an 
initial article or two in 1968, took 
little notice of the pending invasion. 
The Vietnam War still had top 
billing and dreadful reviews. The 
Purple's girl of the week photo 
feature survived for a time but had 
begun to take on an anachronistic 
look like an Esquire centerfold. 

When fall 1969 arrived, 108 
young women were registered. 
Newspapers in Nashville and Chatta- 
nooga took a quaint delight in the 
event and submerged themselves 
in its meaning with about as much 
ease as a cat enters a pond. One 
student was quoted that he feared 
Sewanee was "falling into the 

leveling process of American Social 

Ham, on the other hand, revel- 
ed in "Sewanee's eternal human 
comedy." Lily white tablecloths, 
mopped floors, conversation, and 
"acceptable social usage" are still 
rarities "at table," he wrote. 
"Gregarious curses shake 
Gailor's baronial walls, and, hope- 
fully, the blessed damsels are duly 
impressed," he added. 

The first dean of women was 
Elizabeth Morrow, a graduate of 
Queen's College and Columbia Uni- 
versity. Hers was a tumultuous 
tenure. A major conflict arose from 
a women's curfew, which was meant 
"to afford the girls privacy and pro- 
tection." The steering committee of 
students that resulted from the 
protest may have been the first evi- 
dence of women's political power 
at Sewanee. 

Despite some problems it was a 
happy beginning. The Rt. Rev. 
Girault Jones, the former chancel- 
lor, recalls that the atmosphere on 
the campus changed abruptly "and 
the feeling has been increasingly^^ 

"The women began to set some 
patterns we were losing in terms of 
scholastic achievement," he said. 
Robert S. Lancaster, dean of 
the College in 1968 and himself op- 
posed to the admission of women 
before the trustees* decision, used 
his elegance to assuage concern 
among traditionalists. 

Perhaps nothing would strength- 
en confidence and love for Sewanee 
more than the record of the stu- 
dents, both male and female. A 
visitor to the mountain last year 
was overheard asking a student 
about the admission of women. 

"I suppose all the old traditions 
are gone," the man said. 

"None that matter," the stu- 
dent replied. 

"Would you tell me, 
please, which way I 
ought to go from here?" 

"That depends a good 
deal on where you want 
to get to, " said the Cat. 




A newcomer to Sewanee, especially 
an innocent male, might not real- 
ize that a revolution had recently 
taken place or perhaps was even 
under way on this previously all- 
male campus. 

The proletariat in this struggle 
of the genders— not the battle of 

t much as the emergence 
of an idea— are not the class-con- 
sciousness, bolshevik types full of 
doctrine and icy stares. 

One is impressed, to the con- 
trary, with the unconsciousness, 
the unassuming attitude about 
femininity and sexual roles. If 
Sewanee's women are less confident 
or less intense than the men about 
their studies, their careers, and 
their futures, they do not show it. 

All this does not mean there 
has not been a wringing of hands 
and gnashing of teeth or the tears 
that well up from coming face to 
face with centuries of catabolic 
male traditions. 

A preliminary gearing up for 
the Sewanee Women's Conference 
this year included a mailing of 
questionnaires to all alumnae. The 
conference planners wanted to 
learn what it was like -to be a 
woman at Sewanee, though they 
already had suspicions. They also 
asked if the Sewanee experience 
made the alumnae more profession- 
ally ambitious and confident and 
better prepared for "life after 
college." And they wanted to know 
how the alumnae would want Sewa- 
nee changed for their sisters or 

If you were to expect jackdaw 
answers a la Kate Millett, you 
might be surprised. Even the most 
offended alumnae reveal a sense of 
humor, and the vast majority give 
way to honest affection for Sewa- 
nee, which they might as quickly 
accuse of too much coddling. The 
outside world may be harsher. 

"Sewanee did not discriminate 
against women as the business 
world does," wrote Kathryn Bemal, 

There is great variety among the 
responses, and one cannot help but 
detect subtle shifts in attitudes 
from earlier to later classes, indicat- 
ing both changes in Sewanee and 
relative changes in the outlooks and 
ambitions 'of the students. 

"Male attitudes at that time 
were widely divergent," wrote 
Emily Sheller Williams, C'72, about 
those early years. "There were 
those who heartily opposed our 
presence and those who were posi- 
tively delighted by it." 

Molly Hull Bennett, C'72, said: 
"At the beginning I think we were 
disruptive to an extent, and a large 
amount of attention was directed 
toward us. But there was never any 
indication that the high standards 
of Sewanee were lowered on our 
account, as I learned." 

Said Christine Anne Bay, C'73: 
"The first year or so, there was as 
much pressure to be like a good 
party weekend date as there was to 
excel academically. It was like 
being in a fishbowl. Later both 
classes and the social atmosphere 
became more comfortable." 

"At first it was like being a 
prom queen with lots of men 
gobbling me up (with their eyes 
only)," wrote Barbara Lynn San- 
ders, C'74. "Then I began to move 
toward a more comfortable place 
for me once I was exposed to 
women's liberation by Cynthia 
Keyworthy, Agnes Wilcox, Anita 
Goodstein, et al. Then being a 
woman felt conflictual but power- 

"We were too singled out, 
constantly compared to the men," 
wrote Lorayne Hoover Corcoran, 

Mary Shelton, C75, saw events 
from a different angle: "I think the 
women's attitude toward women 
was more a problem than the 
sexism of male students and profes- 

For each alumna who detected 
discrimination, there were two or 
three who either said they did not 

find it at Sewanee or expressed 
their experiences at Sewanee in 
other terms. Many jotted down 
criticisms that do not really pertain 
to the roles of women and men, 
jabs at so called social elitism, for 
instance, and the seeming domina- 
tion of the "preppies," a collegiate 
approximation of upper middle 
class WASPs. Even those most 
serious about their studies and 
careers enjoyed writing such things 
as, "I liked having more guys 
around than girls." 

Terrell James, C'77, wrote: 
"I sometimes resented what seemed 
to me the higher esteemed male 
camaraderie among fraternities, 
drinking clubs, ribbon societies; 
between male peers, male students 
and professors. At times I felt 
excluded. Also at times I felt the 
women students were not taken as 
seriously, perhaps because so many 
were expected to marry and leave 
their fields of study. But this is a 
criticism I have of our whole so- 
ciety, certainly not exclusively of 

Ruth Mankin, C'78, said: "I 
remember one day sitting in class 
and being addressed by the elderly 
professor (a Sewanee legend him- 
self) as 'gentlemen and girls'." She 
also wrote: "I feel I was there 
during a period of change, and I 
feel that the attitude of the women 
changed dramatically. In 1974 ; 
parties were never attended without 
a date; all the major offices were 
held by males, but by my second 
and third years, there was undoubt- 
edly an awareness, an 'I'm mad 
as hell....' approach." 

"I view my Sewanee experience 
with ambivalence," wrote Ernie 
Siebold, C'79. "It was an excellent 
educational opportunity, but at the 
same time I found that I really had 
to work hard, perhaps harder 
than males in my classes, to be 
taken seriously by the instructors 
in the department of my major."

Susan Blackford, C'79, said: 
"I often thought tnat anything 
initiated by women on campus was 
looked at condescendingly. The 
prevailing attitude was one of male 
superiority. But as I became accus- 
tomed to Sewanee, as I became 
more a part of the 'Sewanee exper- 
ience,* this feeling faded such that 
by my senior year, I felt that 
women on campus could 'nold 
their own' in any area and in some 
cases could better the men ." 

A number of respondents able 
to compare Sewanee to other 
schools, whether women's colleges, 
state universities, or small coed 
colleges, said Sewanee was their 
best experience. For many their 
experiences at Sewanee fortified 
them against the world they were 
facing. For others even the rutted 
road through Sewanee was not 

"I think if graduates didn't 
experience 'reality shock' on gradu- 
ation, they missed the Sewanee 
experience," wrote Pan Ready 
Adams, C'73, apparently on behalf 
of males and females alike. 

There is a deeper problem ex- 
pressed by Peggy Hudgins Burke, 
C'73: "Women must learn they 
must compete to succeed. Men 
seem to learn this sense of compe- 
tition from numerous sources- 
sports, dating; fraternally and aca- 
demically. Women are too often 
allowed to compete academically 
only. They need varied sources of 
competition. To succeed after 
college, even to survive, women 
must learn to gain this sense of

"First woman" to do this, "'first 
woman" to do that-don't we get 
tired of it! "I think we're past that 
now," says Mary Susan Cushman, 
dean of women. "Now we're just 
electing students." 

Since the day in 1969 when 
Judith Ward became the first coed 
to sign the tradition -en crusted 
matriculation book, women have 
been infiltrating century-old male 
bastions in the College. The Acad- 
emy had had coeds for a year by 
then— they were here even before 
the uniforms vanished— and St. 
Luke's had women students in the 
summer program for years before 
enrolling their first full-time woman 
student in 1971. But women were 
still a small minority. The current 
numbers— 422 women to 567 men 
in the College— were still to come. 

At first the women were hesi- 
tant about getting into campus 
organizations. They were welcomed 

with great joy by the choir director 
for the expansion in repertoire 
possible. (Some people regretted 
that our superlative male choir 
would now have to compete in a 
much larger sphere.) The Order of 
Gownsmen quickly extended to 
women students the same member- 
ship requirements as for men, 
although mutterings were heard in 
the beginning that "gownsMEN" 
was the word. What would they be 
called, and besides how could they 
"uphold the traditions" of the 
place when they had not been here 
long enough to know what the 
traditions were? The name was 
settled, both male and female mem- 
bers are called gownsmen, and this 
year the Order elected a female 

Women quickly made their way 
into Phi Beta Kappa, which already 
had female members on a national 
basis. Of the other honor societies 
on campus, Omicron Delta Kappa 
did not take women members at 
first, though they do now; Blue 
Key is still nationally all-male. The 
University has not yet produced a 
female Rhodes Scholar, though 
four of the six Sewanee students 
who participated in the state inter- 
views last December were women. 
Women have headed the Honor 
Council, Discipline Committee, and 
Student Assembly, and have been 
elected twice as student trustees. 
They have served as firefighters 
(passing the same strenuous tests 
as the men) and were crucial in 
getting the emergency medical tech- 
nician program off the ground. 
Women were also early leaders in 
the Ski and Outing Club, perhaps 
in part because of a slow start in 
women's athletics. 

Several specifically -for- wo men 
groups have been organized— the 
Pink Ribbon Society was one of the 
first, and was followed by the 
White Ribbon. The Women's Inter- 
dorm Council is thriving under a 
new constitution and structure, and 
is serving a vital function as a social 
center. The four sororities that 
have come into existence on cam- 
pus are without permanent quarters 
or national affiliation at this time. 
In the days when Sewanee had 
Air Force ROTC, the girl friends of 
cadets formed the Angel Flight, an 
auxiliary to the ROTC; then girls 
signed up for ROTC themselves, 
and now with the demise of ROTC 
the Angel Flight has become the 
Women's Service League, sponsor- 
ing various service projects like

Perhaps the theme of this mini-essay should be "I told you 
so!" Fortunately there are few people left to tell it to. 
Those students who staunchly defended Sewanee's tradition as 
a male enclave have long since graduated, and, I sincerely hope, 
are married and blessed with daughters. The nay sayers within 
the resident Sewanee community have long since been able- to 
forget their fears in the face of the obviously successful inte- 
gration of women into the student body. 

Women on campus have made a dramatic and 
important difference to the University. Despite declining 
enrollments in the seventies throughout the country, Sewanee 
has not only been able to fill its dormitories, but also to fill 
them with men and women of relatively high academic poten- 
tial. Opening our doors to a second, equally large pool of 
students has kept the college's reputation for excellence viable. 
Occasionally, it is true, one hears a disparaging or defensive 
comment from those who ought to know better. "Girls do 
well academically because they are brought up to be docile" 
or "If we put aside expenditures for football, we spend approx- 
imately the same amount on women's and men's athletics." 

Both statements illustrate the success and the limitations 
of coeducation at Sewanee so far. Women have demonstrated 
their ability to meet the challenges of Sewanee as well as men 
do. Some women, like some men, are excellent scholars, 
athletes, activists in student organizations. But while we pride 
ourselves on the success with which women have competed 
and have been "integrated," we often ignore the extent to 
which the Sewanee world into which they have been "inte- 
grated" remains not so much a male world as an old-fashioned 
world, a world in which male and female achievements are 
measured one against the other, in which football is sacrosanct, 
in which the development of literary and scientific skills, social 
awareness, and professional ambition is viewed as more valid 
for men than for women. These are attitudes that need to be 
challenged so that we can serve women and men more effectively 
in the eighties.

What were the real reasons for the admission of women? As 
is inevitable when a large number of people are involved, 
motives varied from person to person. Some were principally 
concerned with the academic quality of the student body. 
Others felt that a college owned by the Episcopal Church 
should not discriminate against the sex which represents a 
majority of the Church's members. Still others thought the 
time would eventually come when our enrollment would 
decline and were persuaded by the financial argument. Finally, 
many had become appalled at the mindless orgies our party 
weekends had become in the sixties and felt the quality and 
tone of social life would be improved by having women in the 
student body. 

All of these arguments were not only persuasive, they 
were correct. While party weekends are currently by no means 
tame, social life is far healthier and happier now. In academic 
affairs, women have certainly proved themselves in this tenth 
anniversary year by holding ten of the top twelve positions 
in academic standing in the graduating class. 

The Board of Trustees is sometimes criticized for being 
unresponsive. They themselves often feel they lack power and 
consequence in University affairs. In the handling of the 
admission of women, as in many other major cases such as 
compulsory chapel and the military at the Academy, the Board 
clearly demonstrated both its significance and its wisdom as 
the ultimate authority in University decisions.

Council Is 
Social Hub 

When women students get together 
in Sewanee, chances are it is at a 
function planned by the Women's 
Interdorm Council. There" are 
intramural athletics, parties, lunches 
with educational and entertaining 
speakers, seminars, and the Women's 
House where they can study or 
have dinner with friends. 

The Council is representative, 
with members elected by the stu- 
dents in a ratio of 1 to 25. There 
are also representatives of the 
four sororities who come to meet- 
ings but do not vote. The president 
is elected in a campus-wide election. 
This semester she is Jennie Baker, 
a junior history major from Ash- 
land City, Tennessee. The main 
responsibility for activities falls on 
the chairmen for athletics, pro- 
grams, social events, and Women's 

Intramurals for women have in- 
creased in the last four years from 
three (football, softball, volleyball) 
to include swimming, basketball, 
track and field, tennis, and racquet- 
ball. Probably two-thirds of the 
women students participate in some 
form of intramural athletics at 
some time during the year. 

-The Women's House moved to 
larger quarters last year, and now 
has living and dining rooms, kitchen, 

library and two small study rooms, 
as well as three upstairs bedrooms 
where students, including the 
house chairman, live. The WIDC 
gives parties at the Women's House, 
and individual students can also 
sign up to use the house to have 
dinner with friends or faculty, give 
birthday parties, etc. There are 
usually four or five of these events 
a week. 

The social and program chair- 
men have planned a variety of 
activities. There are luncheons 
every two weeks with speakers on 
a variety of topics. There was a 
money-raising spaghetti supper. 
One party attracted 400 people 
who overflowed the house into the 
yard. A rape seminar during second 
semester will include films and 
self-defense demonstrations. 

An effort to improve the 
furnishings at the house is still : 
incomplete, and donations of I. 
books, plants, and furniture would 
be appreciated. 

the Changes 

The admission of women in 1969 
aroused some back-porch specula- 
tion about how this would affect 
such things as enrollment, distribu- 
tion of majors, SAT scores, and 
grade averages. 

Comparing figures is sometimes 
too simplistic to prove very much, 
but it can be interesting. Therefore 
we have made some comparisons 
using figures from 1968 and 

"Legacy" students (relatives of 
alumni) comprised during the past 
year about the same percentage of 
freshmen, 72 out of 299 as opposed 
to 48 of 209 in 1968. Though a 
smaller percentage of these "leg- 
acies" is being accepted (72.5 
percent in 1978 versus 92.6 percent 
in 1968), note the difference in 
the acceptance rate for non-legacies 
-60.3 percent in 1978 and 82.0 
percent in 1968. 

Public and private schools 
furnished approximately the same 
number of freshmen in 1978 (154 
from public, 145 from private). 
In 1968 public school graduates 
were almost twice as numerous 
as private school graduates. 

Several new majors have been 
instituted since 1968. Some fields 

have gone down in popularity, 
while others have shot up, affected 
possibly by both the enrollment 
of women and the times. Fine arts 
has had a disproportionate increase 
in number of majors, as expected 
with the enrollment of women. 
Perhaps not so expected, math 
majors are over twice as numerous 
as in 1968, and natural resources 
(formerly forestry) has almost 
five times as many majors. Psychol- 
ogy is down, as are history, po- 
litical science, philosophy and 
physics. Latin is down but German 
is up. Most other departments are 
holding their own . 

There has been concern across 
the country about the decrease in 
SAT scores over the past ten years. 
In actual scores, Sewanee's 551 
verbal of 1978 was higher than 
1968's 547, while the math score 
of 570 was lower than 1968's 
593. However, relative to the 
national averages (the 1968 verbal 
average of 463 fell to 429 in 1978; 
the 1968 math average of 493 
fell to 467 in 1978), both scores 
showed substantial gains. 

Grade-point averages in the" 
College are up. It was 2.489 in 
1968. Currently the average is 
2.756-2.691 for men and 2.847 
for women. 

Total enrollment this year is 
989, including 421 women. The 
enrollment was 802 in 1968.

Suzanne Drawner, a varsity freshman forward from Chevy Chase, 
Maryland, battles for a score in cage action this winter. 

I believe that women at Sewanee are, to paraphrase 
Virginia Woolf, still working on finding "a room of 
their own," and in some aspects it has been a more successful 
venture than in others. The first group of women admitted to 
Sewanee were aware of the problems that awaited them, and 
I think that awareness helped them gain acceptance. The 
toughest challenge women faced then and which I believe we 
face now is attitudinal, though now our attitudes towards 
ourselves as well as the attitudes of others are what we must 

One of my main concerns is the lack of role models 
for women students. Though I feel no prejudice against male 
professors or administrators, I believe many women would 
agree that more women professors, 'trustees, and regents are 
necessary if Sewanee can continue to claim to offer the full 
benefits of a liberal education to its women students. More 
support for women's activities, women's sports for example, 
would be helpful in contributing to the overall morale and self 
esteem of women students. Sewanee still has a tremendous 
amount to offer its women students, but I have come to 
realize that part of that offer is a challenge which involves hard 
work and commitment. I see a lot of growth and achievement 
among my fellow students, but I guess a healthy sense of 
restlessness keeps us aware of the challenges we still face.

Women's Athletics: Gradual Changes 

By Marian Taylor England. C*74 

The first women students who 
arrived on campus in the fall of 
1969 made their assault on the 
all male social and academic tra- 
ditions of a century . The academic 
curriculum absorbed 108 women, 
the dress code added a clause for 
the Sewanee woman, and the men 
had dates other than on party 

Inevitably, the women students 
had to confront the math and 
language requirements as well as the 
requirement for two hours credit 
in physical education. The first 
women enrolled in bowling, swim- 
ming, ballet, tennis, and horseback 
riding. Women were added to the 
cheerleading squad for football and 
basketball seasons. 

There was no provision for 
women's varsity sports, and the 
issue was not explored by women 
students. Walter Bryant, director 
of athletics, explained, "We didn't 
say 'Here are the varsity sports 
we've selected for women'; the idea 
was to wait and see what programs 
the women students wanted to 

In 1970-71, the female enroll- 
ment increased to 169. The social 
barriers were not as traumatic. All 
the women could consider alterna- 
tives to afternoons spent in the 
dorm or library. They expressed 

an interest in basketball intramurals 
and in a tennis team. 

The intramurals were composed 
of dormitory teams and were 
certainly not over-burdened with 
organization. The tennis team had 
an unenviable record and was taken 
to matches by the soccer coach's 
wife. However, the excellent indoor 
tennis courts were a natural lure 
to scholarly inclined women stu- 
dents who were also tennis players. 

In 1971, Sewanee hired Mary 
Jane Donnally to do a job of 
formidable proportions. The 
Wimbledon veteran became dean 
of women, assistant professor of 
psychology and education, and 
varsity tennis coach. The Chatta- 
nooga Times described this as 
"a combination that would stump 
most panels on 'What's My Line'." 
Sewanee women played four 
official varsity matches in the 
spring of 1972. 

As more women were accepted 
to Sewanee, there was more 
diversity of the women's interests. 
The athletic department could not 
remain an ivory tower as the stu- 
dent ratio crept toward median 
percentages. Women in general 
began to value team sports, and 
the women who came to Sewanee 
wanted them. 

Martha Swasey was hired in 
1972 as the first woman to have 
full responsibility for the 291 coeds' 
physical training, intramurals, and 
varsity athletics. 

The fall of 1973 witnessed the 
advent of field hockey and gym- 
nastics to the roster of varsity pro- 
grams. Shortly after, synchronized 
swimming, basketball and volleyball 
joined the list. 

The early women's teams were 
nurtured by helpful, volunteer 
faculty coaches like Laurence 
Alvarez for volleyball and Kevin 
Green for field hockey. Coach 
Bryant believes the women's ath- 

letic program has reflected the 
varsity preferences of Sewanee 
women. Teams originated by stu- 
dent request rather than by admin- 
istrative decree. 

In 1976, Mrs. Swasey hired Pam 
Lampley as her assistant. Mrs. 
Lampley took responsibility for 
women's basketball and tennis. This 
addition culminated a six year goal 
of having a coach, practice hours, 
and budget for each of the varsity 

Cross country competition seems to create serious conversation 
among Mary Susan Cushman, left, dean o'f women; Pam Lampley,

women 's gymnastics coach. 

sports in the women's program. 
Sewanee had the foundation for a 
department of women's athletics 
for the .ieeds of its 400 coeds. 

The enrollment has stabilized 
at around"400 women, as a ratio of 
40 percent women to 60 percent 
men. The number of varsity sports 
for women has stabilized at seven: 
volleyball, basketball, field hockey, 
cross country, gymnastics, syn- 
chronized swimming, and tennis. 

Currently, 70 women, as 18 
percent of the women, are involved 
in the varsity program. Women's 
athletic director Pam Lampley 
would like to see a 2 percent 
gradual increase in this figure to 
a possible 25 percent participation 
goal. Her view to the future is not 
a primary concern for the immedi- 
ate addition of more varsity sports, 
but rather a strengthening of the 
women's recruiting system. This 
would lend more depth to the 
team structures we currently field. 

Sewanee does not recruit 
women with an offer of scholarship 
aid on the basis of athletic ability. 
This distinction is one of the 
factors that classifies our level of 
competition in our membership in 
the Association of Intercollegiate 
Athletics for Women. The AIAW 
provides a national and regional 
network for competition in 
women's sports. The Tennessee 
College Women's Sports Federation 
provides the state level of com- 

Sewanee is an active member of 
the Division III level of competition. 
This year, the cross country team 
placed fourteenth in the nation, 
and the basketball team will host 
the TCWSF Division III tourna- 
ment. The volleyball and field 
hockey teams host annual invita- 
tional tournaments, and Sewanee 
will be the site of the 1980 South- 
em Aquatic Art Symposium. 

The dormitory intramural 
program provides an alternative 
means of athletic competition. 
The women are rewarded by the 
fun of being on a team, but with a 
less intense level of competition. 
The dormitory teams have repre- 
sentatives who help coordinate 
the competition in basketball, 
football, softball, volleyball, tennis, 
swimming, and track. 

The women at Sewanee have 
had a unique opportunity to shape 
an athletic program that expresses 
their interests and talents. The 
success of the past decade indicates 
an exciting future for women's 
athletics on the Mountain.

Opinion Is Rapidly Changing 

The following editorial appeared in the 1883 Cap and Gown. It was rediscovered by an 
industrious coed, who also happens to be a Yankee. —Ed. 

The North has taught us many 
things. William Lloyd Garrison 
and Mrs. Stowe once lectured 
us on humanity. The lesson 
was received with anger: we 
repeat it now with gratitude. 
The great, busy, stirring North 
possesses the most perfect 
school systems in the world. 
On educational systems she 
speaks with authority. Let us 
listen and learn . There the 
question of coeducation is fast 
deciding itself. The State can 
not afford to support two 
great institutions one for each 
sex. Even a Michigan, wealthy 
and well governed, can not 
have two Ann Arbors. Both 
sexes have the same mental 
aspirations, the ignorance of 
either is equally dangerous to 
the state, both have the same 
inalienable rights, and both 
equally maintain the state. 
Why then shall one be exclud- 
ed from the privileges of a 
higher education? There is but 
one conclusion; and recogniz- 
ing it, college after college in 
the North is throwing open its 
gates to the other sex. Even 
here in the south, many state 
institutions, recognizing the 
soundness of the position, 
have followed the same course. 
But a sickly, misguided public 
opinion, the result of romance 
and ignorance, deprives these 
wise regulations of all value. 
And those unable to bear the 
expenses of a seminary must 

be content with a common 
school education. 

And these are the mothers 
of our country upon whose 
instruction depends the early 
education of the rising genera- 
tion! Truth can never come 
from ignorance, and the bless- 
ed days of childhood, when 
the eager mind is alive to every 
impression, leave the child a 
mental blank. But we carry 
our advocacy of the principle 
to its fullest limits. Nature 
intended woman for man's 
intellectual equal. She should 
sympathize with his highest 
thoughts. Yet the long centu- 
ries of false education have 
made her his mental inferior. 
Painting, embroidery, music, 
are the limits of her accom- 
plishments; poetry and novel 
reading constitute her literary 

By nature eminently en- 
dowed with that exquisite ap- 
preciation of the beautiful 
which makes the artist, the 
poet, the musician— can she 
point to a proud name in this 
world of the beautiful? for 
painting, poetry, and music 
are one. Has she a Shelley, a 
Schubert, a Raphael? The 
reason is plain. They have not 
had that severe intellectual 
training which alone makes 
high and exhaustive effort 
possible. But a new era is 
dawning. The numberless nov- 

els by lady writers that fill 
our bookshelves give evidence 
of an increasing activity of 
thought which can have but 
one end. 

But a few years since a 
young lady received the high- 
est honors in biology which a 
Huxley could bestow, and al- 
ready the feminine mind has 
begun to explore the depths of 
metaphysics and poetical criti- 
cism. With these capacities 
why shut them off, buried in 
seminaries, to send them out 
into a world of whose mind 
and life they are in utter igno- 
rance! In these same seminaries 
they cannot receive the impe- 
tus of mind or instructions 
which great colleges will give. 
A Gildersleeve or a Whitney 
will not be buried within the 
walls of a Vassar College. 

Nothing but a false and 
vicious public opinion restrains 
fair votaries from the founts 
of learning. But with gladness 
we see that this opinion is 
rapidly changing, and ere the 
CAP AND GOWN has been 
numbered among the things 
that were but are not, we hope 
to announce that hundreds of 
fair enthusiasts throng the class 
rooms of Harvard, Yale, Co- 
lumbia, yea, even here at prim 
Sewanee are gathering fossils 
down the mountain steeps or 
following Professor Nelson 
through the stars.

Having considered law school but 
not wanting to pursue any graduate 
work immediately after graduation 
from Sewanee I became legislative 
assistant to the Honorable G. V. 
(Sonny) Montgomery (D.-Miss.), 
U. S. Congressman from my home 
town of Meridian. The job gave me 
a wonderful opportunity to observe. 

After a year and a half in 
Congress, I wanted to pursue my 
interest in law and found a job as a 
legal assistant with a relatively 
small D. C. firm, Lane and Edson, 
P.C. I did legislative work at the 
firm. As is typical of Washington 
law firms, it represented many 
clients in a lobbying capacity. This 
showed me yet another side of the 
legislative process for another year 
and a half. 

During that time, I decided to 
take the plunge into law school. My 
father is a lawyer, which I am sure 
influenced my decision somewhat. 
Another primary factor was the 
desire to know more about the 
myriad of laws that control all our 
lives, like it or not, which I had 
ample opportunity to see in opera- 
tion in Washington. 

I remembered that knowledge 
is power, and I wanted at least 
some power to change, or at least 

criticize effectively, that control 
and its exercise. 

I attended the University of 
Virginia School of Law and gradu- 
ated in 1979. Readjustment to 
the academic life was difficult; 
the most difficult aspect was the 
difference between the academic 
community at the law school and 
that at Sewanee. Virginia is a large 
state university, the obvious dif- 
ference. The enrollment at the law 
school was about the same as that 
of the entire College at Sewanee. 
I had envisioned being on the 
beautiful and historic grounds de- 
signed by Jefferson, but found 
that the law school had moved 
to a new building over a mile away 
that had no charm or feeling of 
history or tradition. 

Although the quality of 
teaching there was generally ex- 
cellent, the faculty members spent 
very little time with students and 
seemed uninterested in knowing 
them as people." Competition was 
fierce; all the students had been 
at the top of their undergraduate 
classes, many of them in the Ivy 
League. The students were a great 
group of people, but the placement 
system caused us all to be unduly 
preoccupied with job interviews the 
last two years. 

I can't say that law school was 
a pleasant experience, but I certain- 
ly learned a great deal about the 
value of my Sewanee education. 
The school's size and its concern 
for its students as individuals pro- 
vided me with far greater incentive 
to work and sheer desire to learn, 
which is what formal education is 
all about.

The men's basketball team, under 
second-year coach Jerry Waters and 
first-year assistant coach Rick Jones, 
finished its season with a 14-10 
record and a second place in the 

The Tigers began their schedule 
defeating six of their first nine 
opponents to equal their total num- 
ber of victories for the entire 1978- 

Waters gives credit for the 
improvement to a higher scoring 
offense. The team has averaged 
about 72 points a game, and with 
this new offensive punch, Waters 
has not had to rely on the delaying 
tactics that aided last year's squad. 

The Tigers face respected op- 
ponents this season. Conference 
rival Southwestern at Memphis is 
ranked number five in the nation 
in Division III. Trevecca College, 
which fell to Sewanee 69-62, is 
still rated the number two school 
in their division of the NAIA, 

Waters "always tries to instill 
hard-nosed toughness into his 
teams," and the scrappy, enthusi- 
astic Tigers reflect his philosophy 
in their play. Through sheer deter- 
mination and a quick offense, the 

squad has repeatedly defeated teams 
with more height and reserves. 
The Tigers have also been aided 

by the increased number of fans 
at home games. The recent contest 
between Sewanee and Southwestern 
saw the largest crowd in ten years 
at a Juhan Gymnasium basketball 

Two seniors, Steve Mallonee 
and Philip Bums, lead the Tigers. 
Mallonee, a senior from Chatta- 
nooga, is the team's leading scorer 
with a 19.5 average, while he is 
also ranked in the top ten of 
Division III in free-throw percent- 
age. A junior guard, Bums is the 
Tigers' inspiring floor leader and 
tops the College Athletic Confer- 
ence in assists. 

Hill Named 

John Hill, a College senior from 
Nashville, was named in December 
to the American Coaches Associa- 
tion Kodak All American team in 
Division III. 

Hill was a punter and defensive 
back on Sewanee's squad that 
finished with a 7-2 record and a 
three-way tie for the conference 

During the season, Hill had 
three interceptions, 49 tackles, and 

punted for a 37.4-yard average. 

The Tigers led all other confer- 
ence teams by placing eight players 
on the All-CAC football squad. 

All-Conference defensive play- 
ers include John Hill; Paul Minor, 
junior linebacker, and Gary Roth- 
well, junior lineman. On offense 
are Mike Marchetti and John 
Saclarides, both senior linemen; 
Mallory Nimocks, junior tight end; 
Ricky Dale Harper, senior back, 
and D. J. Reina, sophomore back.

Illinois College, a liberal arts college 
located in Jacksonville, Illinois, 
has joined the College Athletic Con- 
ference, increasing the number of 
members to six. 

Illinois College, founded in

next fall. 

The invitation to join the con-

meeting of the CAC directors. 
During that meeting, Walter Bryant, 
Sewanee athletic director, was re- 
elected chairman of the conference's 
administrative council.

Women's Basketball

only three victories.

assistant Nancy Bowman has 
brought in several new players. 
Four freshmen are starting and

Tennessee junior, who returns from 
the 1978-79 squad. 

Some key victories: 49-43 over 
Southwestern, avenging an earlier 
loss; 80-79 over Millsaps; 62-50 
over Bryan, and 79-63 and 59-39 
over Milligan. 


Despite lack of depth and matches 
against large universities, the 
wrestling team finished with a 4-4 
record in dual-meet competition. 

Tim Garrett, a freshman from 
Nashville, placed second in the 
Southeastern Intercollegiate Wrest- 
ling Tournament, after defeating 
wrestlers from Auburn and Tennes-

sophomore, finished the season

Still, victories are tough to get 
because Sewanee has the only 
Division III gymnastics team in its 
region of the Association for Inter-

Sewanee must either compete with 
Division II colleges, which offer 
athletic scholarships, or travel to 
schools outside the region.

the improvement of the team to the 
greater experience of her gymnasts.

women under the age of 30 who 
are preparing to enter any seminary 
accredited by the Association of 
Theological Schools. The intent of 
the program is to attract to the 
ordained ministry "intelligent, 
imaginative and thoughtful persons 
who are serious about the Church, 
its mission, and concerned for 
its intellectual and spiritual vitality." 

Ellen's interest in mission is 
what brought her to Sewanee. For 
the past few years she has been 
actively engaged in outreach min- 
istries, serving as a lay assistant on 
the chaplain's staff at the federal 
prison in Butner, North Carolina 
and as a crisis counselor for the 
women's service center in Chapel 
Hill, North Carolina. A member of 
Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, 
Ellen also took an active role in 
music, layreading, and singles 
ministry programs in the parish. 
She is an associate with the Com- 
munity of the Transfiguration and 
serves as Southeastern coordinator 
for the Episcopal Peace Fellowship. 
Since coming to Sewanee, Ellen 
has been instrumental in organ- 
izing a supplementary New Testa- 
ment study program for the junior 
class of the seminary. She works 
with the Christian Social Relations 
program of All Saints' Chapel, 
carries on a limited ministry of 
visitation at the Franklin County 
Jail , and pursues her musical 
interest by playing the piano for 
St. Andrew's Chapel and substi- 
tuting as organist at St. Luke's. 
Ellen is not a postulant for 
Holy Orders, but hopes eventually 
to be ordained to the diaconate. 
"We have not yet ordained women 
in my diocese," she says, "but I 
am hopeful that the barriers will 
come down within the next few 
years. The support of the North 
American Fellowship program has 
been a key factor in encouraging 
me to go ahead and prepare for 
the ministry."

Mission Topic 
of Lectures 

The annual Samuel Marshall Beattie 
Lectures were held at the School 
of Theology on Tuesday and Wed- 
nesday, February 12-13. These 
lectures were established as a gift 
of Mrs. Beattie in memory of her 
husband and with their purpose 
being the exploration of issues of 

current concern in the life of the 

This year the lectures provided 
a venture into the meaning of 
mission: what it is and how it is 

The Rev. Arnold Bush, T'62, 
rector of St. Anne's Episcopal 
Church in Tifton, Georgia and 
associate in evangelism and renewal 
for Province IV, described mission 
as "growth in discipling." The 
Rev. Mr. Bush compared the local 
parish's implicit and functional 
theology of evangelism with recent 
learnings and theological presuppo- 
sitions that tend to produce growth 
in discipleship. 

Marie Cirillo, rural developer, 
Campbell-Claiborne coal fields 
(sponsored by the Roman Catholic 
Diocese of Nashville) explored the 
meaning of mission as liberation. 
For her, liberation in rural develop- 
ment is "empowerment of people 

within their community and in 
relationship to their people and 
their land." 

The Very Rev. Urban T. 
Holmes III, dean of the School 
of Theology, concluded the lec- 
tures with his ideas on mission as 
.dreaming. According to Dean 
Holmes, "There are in the human 
consciousness certain basic meta- 
phors which include a longing for 
union with God. One approach to 
mission would be to equip the 
people of God to engage the world 
at the level of such meaning." 

The lecturers then participated 
in a panel discussion reflecting on 
the many aspects of mission in 
today's church. The Rev. John M. 
Gessell, professor of Christian 
ethics, served as moderator. 

New Spring 

Two clergy seminars are being 
offered this spring under the joint 
sponsorship of the seminary's Con- 
tinuing Education Office and the 
Alumni Council. 

The first seminar, April 28 to 
May 2, will be concerned with the 
first volume of the new Church's 
Teaching Series, Christian Believing. 
The leaders will be the Very Rev. 
Urban T. Holmes, dean of the 
School of Theology; Robert Hughes, 
who teaches systematic theology 
in the seminary, and Frank Hart, 
associate professor of physics in 
the College. 

The central question of the 
seminar will be: "How does the 
Church evangelize a world con- 
ditioned by technology and scien- 
tific thought?" 

The following week, May 5-9, 
the Rev. Sister Rachel Hosmer, 
a member of the Order of St. He- 
lena, and Patricia Killen, seminary 
instructor in history of religions, 
will lead a seminar on "Women in 
the Church." The seminar will 
not be an examination of the 
ordination issue but a study of the 
effect that the participation of 
women in the life of the Church at 
all levels has upon the thought and 
action of the Church. 

Doors Open 

Women were taking courses for 
credit in the School of Theology 
for many years before they began 
to seek Master of Divinity and 
Licentiate in Theology degrees at 

The change began to occur 
apparently as women decided they 
would not be satisfied with pursu- 
ing degrees in Christian education. 
Since Sewanee offers no such de- 
gree and specializes particularly in 
preparing candidates for the parish 
ministry, there was almost no break 
in the all-male tradition until the 
Episcopal Church voted to alter 
its own canons. 

The first degree recipient at 
Sewanee was Julia May, who ma- 
triculated in 1971. Because other 
women had been attending classes, 
her presence was not particularly 
conspicuous. Her situation was 
different and difficult because by 
entering the field of church minis- 
try she was not simply breaking 
Sewanee traditions, she was becom- 

part of one of the most contro- 

versial issues of the century in the 
Episcopal Church. 

Nothing in the constitution of 
the University of the South pre- 
vented the admission of women as 
degree-seeking seminarians. There 
were a variety of obstacles to be 
cleared, but nothing seemed to 
interfere overtly. 

Dean George fvi. Alexander 
expressed doubts that scholarship 
funds could be used because the 
rules specified that the recipients 
were to be men. The federal govern- 
ment took care of that problem, 
however, with its own rulings on 
sex discrimination. 

The young women to follow 
Julia May were not admitted for 
another two years after she had 
begun classes. 

To date ten women have re- 
ceived degrees from the seminary. 
Some have turned away from their 
pursuit of ordination because of 
the pressures they have experienced. 

Thirteen women are currently 
seeking degrees in the School of 

The Rev. Donald Armentrout, 
author of the recently published 
history of the School of Theology, 
The litest for the Informed Priest, 
traces in some detail in his book 
events surrounding the admission of 

A 1974 report of the American 
Association of Theological Schools 
said in part: "There was some evi- 
dence of lack of sensitivity on the 
part of both students and faculty 
in comments made to and about 
women, and their whole position 
seemed to be decidedly peripheral." 

If that were true, the attitude 
has apparently been shifting. Pro- 
fessor Armentrout noted further: 
"A majority of the faculty . , . sup- 
port the ordination of women to 
the priesthood and are dedicated 
to improving their situation at St. 

My advent to Sewanee as a faculty member— part time at 
the School of Theology— coincides with the coming of 
women to the College campus. Being a pioneer in any situation 
requires special skills and adjustments and this was no exception. 
Not everyone welcomed women to an exclusively male campus. 
Women had to believe in themselves and know for certain they 
had special gifts to bring. Time has proven this to be true, as 
much was learned by trial and error. 

Our first woman student at St. Luke's was certainly no 
"community of women," for she and I, now a full time profes- 
sor, comprised the woman population. The struggle was to be 
competitive as a woman and not try to become another male 
This is especially true in the ordained ministry. The women of 
St. Luke's added to their ranks by twos and threes until, as a 
group, they petitioned the dean to make as policy that 20 
percent of the annual admissions be women. This was granted 
and we were in. 

Much harder to accomplish was a second women's room, 
the use of "she" in lectures and notices, and acceptance by 
most of the male student body. Most of these struggles are now 
faits accomplis. Women have made for themselves a place in 
Sewanee, and will continue to add to the health and welfare of 
this community. 

Edna Evans 

Assistant professor of Christian education, 


Catherine Barns, T81, of Durham, North Carolina studies in her 
apartment in St. Luke's Hall. 

When my husband and 1 came to be interviewed when I 
applied to the School of Theology, the very kind 
seminary wife who picked us up after we were screened by the 
psychiatrist in Murfreesboro made a hasty tell-tale gesture as 
she showed us to the seminary's "Gospel Wagon." She was fast, 
but I was faster, and I saw the warning message she tried to 
hide. Taped to the driver's visor was written in large block 
letters: "SHE is the candidate!" 

So I knew from the beginning that I would be odd. And 
I am. But once we moved here with our four children we found 
out that in some ways my husband is still more odd. Women in 
seminary were few but no longer new, but what sort of fish is it 
who leaves his career for the sake of a wife's call? People had to 
try to remember to say "spouses" instead of "wives," and some 
folks seemed to shrink and look the other way when we showed 
up at suppers with something HE had made. 

It is still very hard to be a woman called to the priest- 
hood. My husband, thank God, is not only loving, strong, and 
supportive but blessed with an endless sense of humor, deep 
faith, and an ego of tempered steel. We have relied on all of 
these attributes as well as on my determination to fulfill what 
I feel God requires of me. Our children have been very blithe 
about our oddity, and their support and laughter have some- 
times been crucial. Because it is hurtful at times to be viewed 
with suspicion and it is always draining to deal with stock 
assumptions, it has been a wonderful surprise to find that we 
have functioned as a testimony to many of a happy and 
intimate family life lived in joyful response to the call of Christ.

two or three times a year. Drama productions benefit when male and 
female roles can be cast from the student body. Cheerleaders have en- 
livened athletic events, increasing enthusiasm for both boys' and girls' 
athletic competition. 

Girls have moved into leadership roles on equal terms with the boys. 
In both the academic years 1978-79 and 1979-80 the senior proctor, 
chosen by vote of all the proctors, has been female. The N. Hobson 
Wheless Award, the school's highest award for character, was presented to 
girls in 1975, 1976, and 1979. 

The spring of 1980 sees the Academy with 210 students, 114 boys 
and 96 girls. Every available room in Gorgas Hall is occupied to accom- 
modate the 74 boarding girls enrolled. The transition from male-military 
to co-educational boarding school has been completed. 

Eileen Degen has been a math instructor at the Sewanee Academy since 
September, 1968 and is the wife of Robert A. Degen, professor of 
economics at the College. Their daughters, Cathy, A'70, and Barbara, 
A'72, entered the Academy in 1968 with the first contingent of girls. 
They were both valedictorians of their respective classes.

First They Came Marching 

by Eileen Degen 

In September, 1968, 35 girls attired in new uniforms of plaid skirts, 
white blouses and navy blazers with the SMA crest, entered the Sewanee 
Military Academy as day students. The length of these skirts soon became 
a source of disagreement with the newly appointed dean of women. The 
sight of the dean, armed with a yardstick, walking along a row of kneeling 
girls to measure skirt lengths was a novel one at the previously all-male 

The Academy had opened its doors to female day students to fill a 
need created when St. Mary's School for Girls closed in June, 1968. The 
girls who attended the Military Academy were excluded from, or on the 
periphery of, many aspects of school life. They were a small minority in a 
school with a strong military, boarding and male-oriented tradition. 

School government and student leadership operated as part of the 
military structure. The pressure of being a minority group was not helped 
by hearing the Academy prayer for "manly virtues"! 

In the classroom the girls found that they could hold their own, 
and the boys soon accepted the fact that the girls could compete on 
equal terms in academics. Comments to the effect that "girls cannot do 
math" became less and less frequent. In 1970 the first (and it turned out 
the last) female valedictorian of the Sewanee Military Academy was 
honored at Commencement. She was followed at Sewanee Academy 
graduations by female valedictorians in 1972, 1977, and 1979, and 
salutatorians in 1974, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979. The Cum Laude 
Society, which honors academic achievement, has consistently elected a 
disproportionate number of girls. 

The military program was dropped in 1971 and the first eighteen 
boarding girls arrived in the fall of 1972, being housed in the newly 
renovated first floor of Gorgas Hall. The reception lounge in Gorgas soon 
became a popular place for the girls and their guests from neighboring 
Quintard Hall to relax. The change from a male dominated military 
structure and tradition to a fully co -educational boarding school had 
begun. In the development of a new framework of government, objectives 
and activities, the girls have taken full part. 

The life of the school has been enriched in many ways by the presence 
of girls. Social affairs are more relaxed and easier to plan than in the days 
when busloads of girls were "imported" for dances and special weekends

memories of Sewanee and her life 
since graduation. —Ed. 

by Frances Ashcraft Bridges, A'75 

I came to Sewanee in part because 
of the generations of my family 
that had attended, though none 
were women. There was also my 
need of intensive educational and 
social development. Our schools in 
Mississippi had gone through a 
major change, and the unrest 
caused a void in educational oppor- 

When school began that first 
year there were, I believe, 32 of 
us on one dormitory floor. When I 
graduated, there were 27. The 
turnover was great. 

I remember having to stay up 
late to study just to keep up. 
Since we had to turn out the 
slights, I sometimes studied in the 
bathroom where the light was 
always on at night. 

I remember being able to go 
out in the wilderness alone and 
hike till I died. It was nice being 
able to hike without a trail. 

There were Cornelius, Wood 
Duck, Tom Terry, Frank Thomas, 
Good Ole Judy Boatwright, Dragon 
Lady, Mrs. Cook, and what seemed 
to be another thousand top staff 

I remember being able to excel 
because Sewanee would let me. 

One time I blessed out the 
student body for their immature 
behavior in stealing from their own 
store. Itdidn'tmake sense to me for 
us to take away from our privileges. 

I have some bad memories and 
extremely good ones. But the 
memories of Sewanee are so domi- 
nant in my life, I know it was my 

For some reason Nancy (Thoe) 
Russell called me "weirdo" and 
"hey you" when I arrived. She 
didn't like me much at first because 
I would not wear my hair out of 
braids. I tell you, though, I would 
not give up that friend for anything. 
We still keep in touch. She called 
me the day of my wedding, and we 
talked the phone off the wall. Tom 
Fraser, another dear memory, 
called the night before my wedding, 
and we spoke of Sewanee. He 
called from Alaska. Don't tell me 
Sewanee friends aren't forever. 

I don't know why I was "most 
likely to go insane." Who is sane? 

Any quality I have today that 
makes me successful in my jobs 
is a quality Sewanee helped me de- 
velop. When I left Sewanee to go 
on to college, I thought that college 
would mean much more to me 
and my development. Wrong! Col- 
lege smoothed some rough edges, 
but Sewanee formed the base. 

Funny memories: Our 32-woman 
corps attacked the boys' floor in 
Gorgas one night. Got them with 
water pistols. 

I am the guilty one, along with 
other members of TWAD, for the 
bra raid. It was funny. 

Harmful at the time, I am sure, 
but it was a victory for Sewanee 
when the St. Andrew's entrance 
became purple. Who did it? The 
students know. 

How about the time the deer 
came to play in the snow with us? 



I have two jobs at present. 
Both I love. I am a speech, language, 
and hearing therapist for the South 
Panola Consolidated School District. 
It is fun and a daily challenge, but 
not a source of money I will 
eventually need for investing. In my 
other job, I am an independent 
distributor for Shaklee Corporation. 

My major at Mississippi Uni- 
versity for Women was speech 
pathology, with concentration in 
psychology and English.

Interim Term 


The Academy's Master-Students 
Term March 5-19, that in-between 
two weeks in which the curriculum 
goes wild, seems to be shaking 
down into the popular perennial 
courses, with just enough novelty 
thrown in to keep students and 
faculty from going stale. 

Getting off campus is always 
a sure cure for that malady, and 
this year there are several long 
trips planned. Steve McGahee is 
leading a ski trip to Colorado; John 
Wendling is taking another group 
to sample the assets of Chicago; 
Tara Seeley is leading a group to 
spend two weeks in a special 
program at Coventry Cathedral in 
England; Roger Ross is also taking 
a group to England, specifically 
London; and several enterprising 
students have mapped out their 
own independent study for the 
interim term and following on into 
the spring break. For example, 
one girl is working in the art depart- 
ment at Tulane; another is working 
in Missouri at a foster boys' home. 

Speed reading, typing, sewing, 
bridge, math, word games, historical 
studies and the like utilize class- 
rooms, and darkroom work, soft- 
ball, badminton, lifesaving, 
bicycling, and interior design each 
feature some part of the campus 
and environs. 

Demonstrating the range of 
interests of the faculty beyond the 
classroom are mountain rescue 
and canoe repair, taught by Jim 
Scott; bowling and Vietnam cul- 
ture by Payne Breazeale, bicycling 

and needlecraft by Dana Shepherd; 
and home repairs and bridge by 
Phil White, to name but a few; 
Ralph Waldron is again presenting 
nonverbal communication and 
unexplained phenomena. 

The music listening room at 
duPont Library comes into use as 
do the University's tennis courts, 
golf course, and computer. The 
many natural areas on campus 
provide an ideal setting for bird 
watching and field trips to study 
local geology and folklore. 

Art Challenge 

Anne Lundin, an English instructor 
at the Academy, has been selected 
to the Artists-in-the-Schools Pro- 
gram sponsored by the Tennessee 
Arts Commission. 

The program is designed to 
stimulate interest in the arts by 
bringing professionals in various 
fields to work in school districts 
across the state. 

A poet and essayist, Mrs. Lundin 
has had her work published in the 
Old Hickory Review, the English 
Journal, International Poetry 
Forum, and the Journal of English 
Teaching Techniques. She contin- 
ues to teach creative writing and 
one other English course at the 
Academy this semester. She hopes 
to broaden the audience of poetry 
by making it more of a public art

helps Armond Ghazarian, A'80, with a paper. 


The Academy baseball team will 
open a 12-game schedule April 5, 
wearing new white uniforms with 
purple pinstripes. 

The Tigers will be shifting into 
a new district next year and will 
play the members of that district 
in regular-season games this year— 

St. Andrew's, Huntland, Lynch- 
burg, and Unionville. 

Only the opening double-header 
with Randolph School of Hunts- 
ville, Alabama will be outside that 
district lineup. 

Coach Roger Ross said all 12 
games will be played in April 
between spring break and the 
district tournament, which opens 
May 1. 

Coach Ross said he expects 
a large turnout for practice. The 
lone returning starter will be 
Tom Cross. Sewanee will also have 
a junior varsity team this year 
under David Snyder, the admis- 
sions director. 

Both the boys' and girls' basketball 
teams suffered losing seasons this 
year before beginning district play 
in late February. 

Sewanee will be moved out of 
the toughest district in the state 
next year, and with six lettermen 
to return -on the boys' squad, a 
brighter year appears to be in the 


The Academy has an enrollment of 
about 210 students, representing 19 
states and 9 foreign countries, this 
Easter term. 

David Snyder, admissions di- 
rector, said he was impressed with 
the academic quality and extra- 
curricular interests among the 18 
new enrollees. 

The nine girls and nine boys 
are all boarding students and come 
primarily from the Southern states. 

Academy interim term projects teach stuaems

Lancaster Speech Praised 

Dean Lancaster's Founders' Day 
address in the December News is 
the finest expression of the pur- 
poses of the University ever to 
come my way. May I suggest that 
the address be printed as a pam- 
phlet for sale or other distribution. 

This brief account of the 
origin of the University of the 
South should be interesting to 
visitors, and it is enlivened by the 
Dean's personal philosophy, to 
which I think most of us would 
give thankful assent. Thus the 
address would give readers both 
factual information and an un- 
expected bonus of spiritual benefit. 

At any rate, my thanks to the 
author and the News for this 
quintessential piece of Sewaneeana.

Alumni Affairs 



by Louis Rice, C'50 

President of the Associated Alumni 

I want to share with you what I feel 
to be one of the most relaxing, and 
at the same time exhilarating, 
experiences I've been involved with 
in some time. In trying to convey 
my enthusiasm for the tasks with 
which I and your other alumni 
officers have been challenged, I 
hope you will feel an equal chal- 
lenge from the great opportunities 
we all have to support Robert 
Ayres and his administration on the 
Mountain in their tasks. 

On Saturday, January 26, we 
met at Sewanee for a general orien- 
tation and discussion of expecta- 
tions and goals of each alumni 
officer during his or her term. Uni- 
versity officials and staff met with 
us. This was the first opportunity 
we had had to get together since 
the general "guard change" back 
in October, so it was a welcome 
event for all of us. 

Mr. Ayres and his staff patient- 
ly filled us in on their general duties, 
their thoughts for the future, and 
their plans for the immediate. 
They were free and candid with 
their answers to the questions we 
asked, though we probed and in 
some cases were critical. 

Each alumni officer then went 
through an expression of his con- 
cept of the job he was expected 
to do during his term, how the 
University could benefit from it, 
and his plans to implement programs 
under his responsibility. In each 
case the University staff person or 
persons most closely involved with 
the alumni position questioned and 
suggested points for clarity and 

As a result of our Saturday 
afternoon on the Mountain, your 
Associated Alumni, led by a new 
group of "spurred on" officers and 
assisted by a new alumni director, 
Beeler Brush, can look forward 
with enthusiasm to some great 
and super plans for 1980 and 1981. 

As the programs and projects 
unfold and take form, we are com- 
pletely confident Sewanee alumni 
everywhere will start to feel a 
little of the renewed closeness to 

the Mountain we all felt by spend- 
ing that one afternoon together. 
This is the first, and most assuredly 
not the last, of such gatherings. 
We wish all of you could have been 


Prepare yourself for homecoming 
1980. It's being tapped as "Super 
Homecoming" by alumni officers, 
and one of the major events, it is 
hoped, will be the honoring of 
Clara Shoemate {now Mrs. James 
Orlin), former manager of the 
Sewanee Inn and other restaurants 
near Sewanee. 

Louis Rice, president of the 
Associated Alumni, terms it all as 
the "golden decade celebration," 
taking in the classes of 1940 to 
1950 especially. 

The hearsay is that Miss Clara 
is writing a book about her ex- 
periences at Sewanee, entitled For 
Purple Mountains Majesties. 


The College office of admissions is 
presently receiving applications 
for the position of assistant director 
of admissions. 

The person selected will begin 
work in mid-August and must be 
willing to travel extensively. Appli- 
cations will be considered through 
the month of March. 

Inquiries and letters of appli- 
cation with resumes should be 
addressed to Albert S. Gooch, Jr., 
director of admissions, the College 
of Arts and Sciences, Sewanee, 
Tennessee 37375. 

Alumni Assist 
College Choir 

Thirty-five members of the Uni- 
versity choir completed a tour to 
seven cities in January generating 
conspicuous enthusiasm for Se- 
wanee wherever they went. 

The assistance of alumni and 
Sewanee clubs, particularly those 
in some cities, added to the suc- 
cess of the tour. 

Attendance at the Evensong 
services at most every church was 
greater than had been anticipated. 

The service at Grace-St. Luke's 
Church in Memphis, which began 
the tour, was well received, and the 
Sewanee Club reception and meet- 
ing afterward provided an oppor- 
tunity to stir enthusiasm for 
Sewanee. Choir members stayed 
the night in the homes of alumni 
and Sewanee friends. 

The choir sang at St. Andrew's 
Cathedral in Jackson, Mississippi 
where it was predicted that perhaps 
25 persons would attend Evensong. 
More than 100 were on hand for 
the performance. A pot luck dinner 
was held after the service. During 
the visit, the choir also sang at the 
Cathedral School. 

In New Orleans the choir per- 
formed in Christ Church Cathedral 
the morning after a special recep- 
tion at the cathedral parish hall. 
Turtle soup was served at the well- 
attended reception. 

Another warm reception was 
given the choir following an Even- 
song performance at Christ Caurch 
in Covington, Louisiana, a church 
consecrated by Bishop Leonidas 

The choir then sang at St. 
Christopher's Church in Pensacola, 
Florida where a dinner was given 
for the choir. A large number of 
alumni attended. Choir members 
also enjoyed an outing on the 

An Evensong service at St. 
John's Church in Montgomery, 

Alabama was followed by a recep- 
tion and a tour of the capital the 
next day. The choir sang on the 
circular staircase of the capitol 

An Evensong service at St. 
Luke's Church in Birmingham, 
where the choir sang from a loft in 
the rear, was also followed by a 
reception. Present to greet the choir 
was Bishop Furman C. Stough, 
University chancellor. 

Sewanee Club 

The Sewanee Club of Chattanooga 
has reorganized under new pres- 
ident Lawson Whitaker, C'72, who 
replaces Edward N. (Ned) Boehm,

club is a cocktail party March 15 
at Lawson Whitaker's home on 
Signal Mountain. The other new

Class Notes 

In the interest of easier reading, we are changing 
the method of publishing class notes, providing 
separate sections for the Academy, School of 
Theology, and College. For alumni of two or 
three divisions, we try to remember to write 
notes for each section. 

It is not the separation of alumni we have in 
mind. Rather the new method should keep 
everyone more alert to the weak points in our 
note gathering and provide more clarity in 
alumni communications. 

Send us some news.

William B. Royer, Jr., A'49, is one of more than 50 Americans taken 
hostage by militants in the U. S. Embassy in Iran. This information has 
been confirmed in Houston, the home of his mother, and by the 
International Communications Agency (formerly the U. S. Information 
Agency) with which Royer is.employed. 

Bill is a Middle East specialist with many years of experience in that 
area. He was teaching English for the American-Iranian Society Center 
in downtown Tehran at the time of his capture. 

The society is a privately funded organization established 25 years 
ago by Iranians and Americans interested in bringing the two countries 
together. The center's main activity was to teach English, and at the time 
of the embassy takeover, it had several thousand students. 

According to a spokesman for the International Communications 
Agency, Royer and another American employe were at the center when 
the U. S. Embassy was captured. They did not go into hiding and were 
apparently arrested later in the day and taken to the embassy. 

Mike Murphy, a former English professor at the University of Texas 
and a long-time friend of Royer, described him as intelligent, patient, and 
resourceful and most likely to conduct himself well in the presence of 
his captors. 

"He was a great lover of local culture. He spent many, many hours 
going to the local markets, visiting Islamic and pre-Islamic architectural 
sites," Mr. Murphy said. "He was fascinated and intrigued by that 
culture, by that marvelous geography." 

Royer spent several years in Saudi Arabia, teaching and living in a 
Peace Corps-like village. When the Saudi training program ended, Royer 
became director of courses for the Saudi Arabia Institute of Modern 

In 1967 he joined the U. S. Information Agency and was sent to 
Jidda, Saudi Arabia as assistant at the center there. He later became 
assistant cultural affairs officer and an English-teaching officer in Rabat 
where he served until 1973. 

At the Academy, Royer reached the rank of sergeant first class, 
played on the tennis and track teams and was a member of the Cotillion 

After his graduation he attended Rice University where he was a 
member of the Canterbury Club, an Episcopal student organization. 
He served in the Navy from 1951 to 1955, then enrolled at the University 
of Texas and received a bachelor's degree in June 1961. He was manager 
of the Co-op Bookstore on the Texas campus before being selected to 
participate in the Saudi Arabian training program under which 
Americans were allowed to teach in Saudi Arabian secondary schools. 


THOMAS A. GASKIN, C, was recent- 
ly appointed associate director of medical

Hnished a term as a coordinator of the

Bruce Cleveland (Rodarmor, C'67) plays the lead role of William 
Hollowell Magee in George M. Cohan's comedy Seven Keys to 
Baldpate at the Boal Barn Playhouse in Pennsylvania. 


Bruce Cleveland Rodarmor, C'67, has launched himself into an acting 
career (under the stage name of Bruce Cleveland) which has all the 
earmarks of success despite the crowded field: 

Most recently he won the role of Rumpelstiltskin in the children's 
play of that name at the Carriage House Experimental Theatre in 
Huntington, Pennsylvania. 

A reviewer for the Huntington Daily News wrote. "Bruce Cleveland 
as Rumpelstiltskin turns in an exemplary performance. In collaboration 
with director Jody Butte, he makes the gnome not a sly, laid-back villain, 
but a wild, peripatetic, unpredictable flash. Cleveland modulates the part 
well, transmogrifying from menacing cackle to full rage without missing 
a beat. His pyrotechnical entrance and ensuing acrobatics complete 
the image of the Teutonic devil." 

Last summer he did the lead role in George M. Cohan's comedy 
Seven Days to Baldpate at the Boal Playhouse in Pennsylvania. 

In the spring he performed in Georges Feydeau's Le Dindon (Sauce 
for the Goose) and played the roles of Vaslav Nijinsky in The Circus 
Dancer and Harold Gorringe in Peter Shaffer's Black Comedy. 

Bruce has studied acting with Uta Hagen, the creator of the role of 
Martha in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, at HB Studios in New 
York City. He has been lying low for the winter (home is Belleville, 

- Pennsylvania) before beginning auditions this spring. 

Although he was involved in theatre as an undergraduate at Sewanee, 
Bruce said his acting interests have blossomed since graduation. 

Those who know him may be surprised he has not been involved in 
musicals. He plays the guitar, electric bass, harmonica and drums 
professionally and has sung blues, folk, rock, and original material in a 

- <iuo and a band. Bruce has composed and written more than 30 songs. 

He said he intends to be in some musicals within the next couple 
of years. The range of possibilities is getting wider. 



Catherine Sue Perry, C'75, has crossed a lot of mountains and plenty of 
obstacles since leaving Sewanee, and because of them she may have 
settled on a career that suits her. 

The day after commencement in 1975, Catherine went to work 
in Kaibab National Forest on the north rim of the Grand Canyon. She 
worked for the U. S. Forest Service's engineering division, inspecting 
road construction. ^ 

A year and a half later, she left that job and with Rachel Lynch, 
C'76, toured Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Upon returning 
to the states, Catherine ran into Chris Garrison, C'77, and James (Red) 
Anderson, C'77. They were headed for Peace Corps duty in Honduras. 
Their challenge to "come along" was too good to ignore. 

For ten weeks, six hours a day, she was immersed in language 
training, the beginning of a two-year assignment in Honduras that toCk 
her into the depths of the countryside. 

Her project involved an inventory of natural resources and a land- 
ownership survey for the Honduran government. For two to four weeks 
at a time, the team she was on, which included another Peace Corps 
volunteer, would be in the field (or the jungle). 

On one trip the team hiked 40 kilometers and crossed 16 rivers 
in a single day. 

"After the first two rivers, I gave up trying to keep my feet dry," 
Catherine said. 

Unused to women from America (especially Sewanee), the guides 
were surprised Catherine and her female companion completed the 

Speaking of her supervisors, Catherine said: "They were not sure at 
first whether we (the women) were willing to go into the wilderness, 
but we were more willing than the men." 

The team's task was to collect plants and flowers and prepare them 
to be sent to an agricultural school for collation. 

They would meet local peasants, frequently to seek out persons 
who knew the trees and other plants. Their diet was peasant fare 
such as rice, beans, and tortillas— occasionally meat or eggs and always 
strong black coffee. 

Traveling the roughest country roads, they would visit villagers 
who had not seen a vehicle in weeks. 

"People would run out to see and be more excited to see gringos," 
she said. "In the middle of nowhere we would find a little shack, 
and the place would sell Cokes." 

"Sometimes a store would have a gas refrigerator and the drinks 
would be cold. But usually they would be hot. Still it was a nice change 
from iodized water, which tastes terrible," she said. 

When Catherine left Honduras, she studied for five months in Costa 
Rica, taking courses in tropical dendrology, ecology, and land manage- 
ment. Her sights had become set on a career in tropical ecology and 
work in the tropics. 

She returned home to Knoxville for the Christmas season and a short 
breather before beginning graduate work in January at the University 
of Tennessee. 

"It is almost impossible to work in tropical ecology without advanced 
degrees," she said. "The field is becoming more competitive, especially 
as persons native to the tropical countries become trained."

his car, which had plunged off a moun- 
tainous section of Interstate 24 south' 
of Monteagle. 


They Support Sewanee Best 

Each year the University recognizes 
the parish churches which have con- 
tributed to the University a dollar 
or more for each communicant. 

For the calendar year 1979, 
261 churches have been designated 
Honor Roll Parishes and have re- 
ceived certificates of recognition. 
The total is an increase of 29 over 
the previous year. 

There are two church-related 
programs for the annual investment 
of Episcopalians in the University. 
Sewanee-in-the-Budget is the pro- 
gram of general support of the 
entire University which encourages 
parishes and dioceses to make 
annual budget grants at the rate of 
one dollar for each communicant. 

The Theological Education 
Sunday Offering is a nationwide 
annual offering from Episcopalians 
specifically in support of the 
seminaries. Sewanee-in-the-Budget 
is the major source of financial 
support for Sewanee from the Epis- 
copal Church. 

Dioceses which have contribu- 
ted a dollar amount above the 
number of their communicants are 
Alabama, Central Gulf Coast, and

Deferred Gift 
Aids Sewanee 

Tne Rev. and Mrs. William D. 
Henderson have recently completed 
their second of two unitrust agree- 
ments with the University of the 
South totaling approximately 

Under the agreement, the Hen- 
dersons, who are retired, will 
receive income for the remainder 
of their lives. The gift was made in 
the form of 4,587 shares of Xerox 
Corporation stock. 

The Rev. Mr. Henderson, T'58, 
who holds an honorary Doctor of 
Divinity degree from Sewanee, was 
an engineer with a Boston firm for 
36 years before he decided to enter 
seminary. He received a master's 
degree from the School of Theol- 
ogy in 1958. 

At the time of his recent re- 
tirement at the age of 90, he was 
parish missioner of St. John's and 
Christ Episcopal Churches in Roan- 
oke, Virginia. In that capacity he 
took the Church's ministry to the 
sick, shut-ins, and aged in hospitals 
and retirement homes, ready to 
go wherever he was needed at a 
moment's notice. 

Mr. and Mrs. Henderson are 
leaving Roanoke to enter a retire- 
ment home in Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina where he plans to continue 
his work with the aged. 

Loose Gold 

With the world gold rush on, you 
have probably made a mental note 
of various pieces of gold and silver 
about the house and the mouth. 

Undoubtedly you are not 
anxious to rush out and sell fine 
family pieces. You may have other 
items, however, whose values are 
not likely to raise eyebrows but 
which could have significance when 
gathered together with similar items. 

An interesting illustration is 
that of Miss M. Ethel Bowden of 
Chevy Chase, Maryland, the sister 
of the late Rev. Paul Bowden, C'16, 

Some months ago, Miss Bowden 
sent a letter to Marcus Oliver, 
director of annual giving, and ex- 
plained that her late father, the 
Rev. Upton Beall Bowden, an 
alumnus and former trustee, had 
once collected old silver and gold 
from which he had had some 
communion silver made. Similarly 
she had various pieces of jewelry 
and other items she would like to 
give to Sewanee, if they would be 

After a further exchange of 
letters, the gift was accepted. The 
collection consists of broken silver 
spoons, a gold buttonhole orna- 
ment, a gold ring pendant, cuff 
links, a Greek letter monogram pin, 
gold ring bands, pencils, and more 
than a dozen other items, including 
a small University of the South seal 

The gift is of interest because 
it represents sincere affection for 
Sewanee. It illustrates still another 
principle not lost on development 
officers like Mr. Oliver: that while 


this small collection of pieces is 
not unusually valuable, it becomes 
so if joined by similar gifts from 
many other alumni and friends. 

Another note of interest about 
the Bowden family: Miss Bowden is 
the sister of the late Mrs. Margaret 
B. Marshall, who was also a long- 
time friend of Sewanee. Their 
brother's widow, Mrs. Paul Bowden, 
has currently given more than 
.$100,000 to the School of Theol- 
ogy, specifically to the Paul D. 
Bowden Scholarship and Student 
Aid Fund. 

Times Editor 

Nick B. Williams, C'26, H'73, once 
listed his only hobby as fishing, 
but his friends attested to the fact 
that he did not dip a line in water 
for years. Despite the lack of time 
this astute newspaperman was ex- 
tremely well read and had a con- 
suming interest in every person and 
every thing. 

That interest was the key to his 
life and to his success as editor of 
the Los Angeles Times. 

Altogether he spent 41 years at 
the Times, 14 of them as editor, 
and was honored frequently for his 
contributions to American jour- 

When awarded a Doctor of Civil 
Law by the University of the South, 
his citation noted that while Mr. 
Williams was editor of the Times, 
"the newspaper doubled its circu- 
lation, developed 17 overseas 
bureaus, expanded its national 
staff, and received an impressive 
succession of Pulitzer Prizes. 

"In short, Mr. Williams trans- 
formed the Los Angeles Times 
from a large-city daily into a major 
national newspaper of the first 
rank. He has, therefore, made a 
substantial contribution to the 
maintenance of a vigorous free 
press in the United States." 

The memory of this notable 
alumnus has now been honored 
by a recent $12,533 gift to the 
University from Mrs. Nick B. 
Williams, his widow. 

During his lifetime, Nick 
Williams was dedicated to strength- 
ening private colleges and univer- 
sities wherever he could because 
of what they mean to the individual 
and for what they mean to the 
nation. For this reason, Mrs. Wil- 
liams' gift is particularly appropriate.

Gift Honors 
Mrs. Wakefield 

The Rev. Francis B. Wakefield, Jr., 
C'23, T'26, has recently increased 
the University's Pooled Income 
Fund by a gift in memory of his 
wife, Gladys Comforter Wakefield. 

Mrs. Wakefield actively assisted 
her husband throughout his min- 
istry in Florida and at All Saints' 
Church in Mobile, Alabama, where 
he served for many years. Not only 
did she give private piano lessons, 
but at the request of the vestries 
in each of the parishes her husband 
served, she directed the choirs. She 
was also the mother of their two 

Bom in Apalachicola, Florida, 
Mrs. Wakefield received a bachelor's 
degree from Florida State College 
for Women in Tallahassee and was 
later graduated from the Cincinnati 

Conservatory of Music. She served 
about six years as assistant to the 
dean of the School of Music at 
Florida State College for Women. 

The Pooled Income Fund is one 
of the deferred gift options of 
the University. Donors, and some- 
times their spouses, receive the 
income from their gifts during their 


Mr. and Mrs. C. Houston Beaumont, 
long-time residents of the moun- 
tain, have given their Sewanee 
home to the University. 

The large two-story residence, 
located at South Carolina and 
Oklahoma Avenues, was built in 
1900 and was occupied by the 
Frank W. Handy family for many 
years in the first half of the century. 

The University plans to make 
the house available to the new dean 
of the College, W. Brown Patterson, 
Jr., who will arrive at Sewanee 
this summer. 

Mr. Beaumont is the recently 
retired executive vice president and 
secretary of Tennessee Consoli- 
dated Coal Company. Mr. and Mrs. 
Beaumont have recently moved to 
Destin, Florida. 

In accepting the gift, Vice- 
Chancellor Ayres expressed the 
appreciation of the University for 
this warm demonstration of love 
and support for Sewanee. 


During the current fiscal year, the 
University has received approxi- 
mately $440,000 in bequests, 
ranging in size from $300 to more 
than $300,000. 

The largest was the bequest of 
Z. Cartter Patten, who died in 
Chattanooga in 1948, leaving a life 
interest ' to his daughter, Miss 
Dorothy Patten, now deceased. The 
School of Theology shared equally 
in the million-dollar estate with the 
Diocese of Tennessee and the Uni- 
versity of Tennessee at Chattanooga. 

Mr. Patten was one of the 
South 's leading industrialists and 
chairman of the board of Chatta- 
nooga Medicine Company. He was a 
civic leader and philanthropist. At 
the time of his death, the Univer- 
sity Board of Trustees passed a 
resolution which said in part: 
". . . Few men have done more for 
the glory of God and the good of 
men than this able, devout, and 
devoted layman." 

A second gift of $80,105 was 
received from the estate of Nettie A. 
Fitch of Winter Park, Florida. The 
proceeds are to be used to defray 
expenses of students studying to be 
Episcopal clergy. 

An unrestricted bequest was 
received from the trust estate of 
Elizabeth Brinkley Currier of 
Memphis who died in 1941, leaving 
a life interest to a friend in Switzer- 
land. The University received the 
appreciated sum of $23,303, a half 
interest in the estate. The other 
half was bequeathed to St. Mary's 
Cathedral in Memphis.

"We heard it here first." 

Such was the comment of 
Robert Benson, associate professor 
of English, describing important 
original research presented at the 
recently concluded Sewanee Me- 
diaeval Colloquium. Several of the 
papers are to be published soon 
in substantially the same form in 
which they were read at Sewanee. 
Professor Benson called the col- 
loquium "the most stimulating 
scholarly meeting I have ever 
attended. ... A real feather in 
Sewanee's cap." 

Marie-Therese d'Alverny of 
France, a principal speaker, spoke 
on cosmology in the early Middle 
Ages, and showed slides from little 
known manuscripts. Her talks 
carried out the theme "The Classical 
Heritage in the Middle Ages" by 
illustrating how many of the 
elements in these manuscripts were 
drawn from the works of Pliny. 
Fred Robinson of Yale Uni- 
versity, one of the featured lectur- 
ers, has been called the world's 
number one Old English scholar. 
His lecture, "Links with the Past: 
Scribe, Text and Author," showed 
how the sound of the language 
affects the composition of the 
verse and its meaning, and enchant- 
ed a large crowd including about 
60 students. 

His reading and translation of 
such English poetry as "Hwaet! We 
Gardena in Geardagum, beodcyninga 
brym gefrunon. . ." (Beowulf, 8th 
century) was a revelation to those 
not as well versed in the changes of 
pronunciation in the development 
of our language. Benson said, "I 
have never heard Shakespeare read 
with such authority in the old 

Professor Robinson wrote after 
the colloquium, "I am now a hope- 
less devotee of Sewanee," and 
praised the beauty of the campus 
and the graciousness of the people. 
He also suggested that he has done 
so much boosting of Sewanee 
since then that he deserves to be 
made an honorary alumnus. 

In the intensive two days, 22 
papers were presented, as well as 
lectures by four distinguished 
visitors. The University's 16-member 
Colloquium Can tic um entertained 
with a concert of sacred music

from the 13th, 14th and 15th 
centuries on Friday evening. After- 
wards the University chaplaincy 
hosted a reception at the EQB 
house in honor of Dr. Edward B. 
King, colloquium director. 

The mix of scholarly expertise 
and warm sociability was praised 
by many participants. Mildred L. 
Day of Birmingham-Southern said 
it for everyone: "The combination 
of the foreign and renowned guests 
with the gathering of scholars 
from all over the U.S.— in an 
informal setting where everyone 
can talk face to face— generates an 
intellectual excitement that none 
of our institutions can do alone." 
Robert Black of The Citadel 
expressed an oft-heard sentiment 
also, when he wrote Dr. King that, 

other than the annual meeting of 
the Medieval Academy (which 
rotates to different places), only 
the Kalamazoo conference can 
match the Sewanee Colloquium's 
first-rate national reputation. 
"What's more," he wrote, "Sewa- 
nee offers what Kalamazoo cannot 
—an intimacy, a 'medieval environ- 
ment,' and above all, wonderful 
opportunities for upstarts to meet 
established scholars." 

Dr. King said many people are 
finding it harder to attend meet- 
ings such as this because of the 
reduction of travel funds. He said 
anyone interested in seeing the 
colloquium continue can donate 
$25 or. more and be listed among 
patrons in the program. The list of 
patrons, encouragingly, is increasing, 

with 28 already signed up for next 
year versus 22 for last year. Dr. 
King said many of these patrons 
have no other connection with 
Sewanee, indeed may never have 
heard of Sewanee except through 
the colloquium. 

Next year's Mediaeval Collo- 
quium will be on the topic of

Reality," and will be on April 10 
and 11. 


Five distinguished visitors received 
honorary degrees from the Uni- 
versity of the South at Commence- 
ment in May. 

Germaine Bree, Kenan Pro- 
fessor at Wake Forest University 
and author of many books and 
articles on French literature, was 
awarded a Doctor of Letters de- 
gree; George Rufus Brown, retired 
Houston businessman, Doctor of 
Civil Law; Charles W. Duncan, Jr., 
A'43, U.S. Secretary of Energy, 
Doctor of Civil Law; Hugh Trevor- 
Roper, Regius Professor of Modern 
History and Fellow of Oriel College, 
Oxford, Doctor of Divinity; and 
the Rev. Charles M. Wyatt-Brown, 
C'38, T'42, rector of Palmer 
Memorial Church in Houston, 
Doctor of Divinity. 

The baccalaureate sermon on 
Saturday was preached by the Rt.

ministries in the Episcopal Church 
Center in New York City. 

All the usual commencement 
activities were on tap, from the 
outdoor brunch, which throughout 
its short history has enjoyed per- 
fect weather, through ribbon 
society parties, departmental recep- 
tions, carillon recitals and the 
Commencement Crafts Fair to the 
formal dinner-dance and the con- 
ferring of degrees and awards. 

Bachelor's degrees were expect- 
ed to be received by 209 seniors 
in the College. The School of 
Theology was to award 25 Master 
of Divinity, one Licentiate in 
Theology, and six Doctor of 
Ministry degrees. 

New Budget 

The University Board of Regents 
has adopted a balanced budget of 
$15,914,200 for the fiscal year that 
begins July 1. 

The total is an increase of 
$2,155,300 over the current year's 
budget, reflecting the tremendous 
effects of inflation and several 
needs that cannot be postponed. 

The balanced budget also is an 
indication of the continuing finan- 
cial stability at Sewanee, which 
could not have been achieved with- 
out good management practices. 

While some major projects are 
being postponed until significant 
funding can be found, the Univer- 
sity is moving ahead with other 
projects— minor renovations at 
Gailor Hall, University Market, 
and the Academy; completion of a 
compensation and job evaluation 
survey; the purchase of additional 
hardware and software to go with 
the new University computer, and 
the purchase of additional equip- 
ment at the University Press. 

Laurence Alvarez, coordinator 
of program planning and budgeting, 
noted that salary increases is a 
major item in the new budget, but 
that the faculty and staff salaries 
remain well behind inflation. 
Another important item in the new 
budget is the renovation of Elliott 
Hall dormitory. 

One important improvement 
in University operations which is 
reflected in the new budget is the 
turnaround in the financial con- 
dition of Emerald-Hodgson Hos- 
pital. The hospital, which has been 
gaining strength for several months, 
with an infusion of new doctors 
and new management, is projected 

to have an operating surplus of 
$60,000 as opposed to the large 
deficits experienced for several 

THBre are large drains on the 
University in other areas. Mr. 
Alvarez said the utilities budget for 
1980-81 is increasing $82,000. The 
budget for utilities is up about 
$200,000 over last year's actual 
utility costs. 

To get the necessary revenue, 
the University must continue to 
rely heavily on gifts to Sewanee . 
and on income from endowment. 
But the University has less control 
over these figures than over tuition. 
Increases for next year in Col- 
lege tuition, room, and board 
charges from $5,520 to $6,050 
will provide the University with an 
additional $530,000. The increase 
in the Academy comprehensive 
charge to $5450 will increase reve- 
nue $109,800 with substantially 
the same enrollment. 

Although resident enrollment 
for the School of Theology is 
expected to decline slightly, reve- 
nue is expected to increase more 
than $200,000 primarily because of 
the continuing growth of Educa- 
tion for Ministry (Theological Edu- 
cation by Extension). 

The University has resisted at 
some sacrifice the tendency to 
make large increases in tuition. 
"If you read U.S. News & 
World Report, " said Mr. Alvarez, 
"you know our tuition and fees 
are increasing less than others in 
our part of the country and certain- 
ly less than colleges and universities 
in other areas." 

College tuition, room, and 
board is being increased only 9.6 
percent, while the inflation rate is 
15 to 18 percent. 

New View 
of History 

Charles G. Bell, American Rhodes 
Scholar to Oxford in the late 
1930s and now on the faculty of 
St. John's College, Santa Fe, New 
Mexico, spent two weeks at 
Sewanee in April, lecturing at the 
College and Academy under the 
sponsorship of All Saints' Chapel 
and the English-Speaking Union. 
A former colleague of Albert 
Einstein at Princeton, Mr. Bell 
has taught in this country and at 
several universities abroad and 
has been the recipient of Rockefel- 
ler, Ford, and Fulbright awards. 
His intellectual range embraces 
astronomy, physics, art, languages, 
music, literature, and philosophy. 

Charles Bell 

These and other academic dis- 
ciplines contribute to his major 
venture, "Symbolic History: A 
Drama of Western Culture." 

Encompassing man's view of 
himself and the world as expressed 
in spirit, thought, and art, Mr. 
Bell's audio-visual series takes the 
form of "a kind of poetic drama 
in sound and light— the fabric and 
unfolding of the human soul in 
the arts of the Christian West." 
The series also includes novels 
and poetry. 

"Symbolic History" has been 
presented at the National Gallery, 
and at Cambridge, Johns Hopkins, 
Swarthmore, Bryn Mawr, and most 
recently, Sewanee. Here, as part 
of the observance of Holy Week 
and Easter, the series shown ran 
from Early Christianity through 
the Renaissance. New Testament 
writers, Augustine, Dante, and 
Pascal were among the major 
Christian authors represented. 

A native of Greenville, Missis- 
sippi, Bell said he almost went to 
Sewanee, but the University didn't 
have a telescope at that time. "My 
father wanted me to go to a 
Southern school, and Virginia had 
the biggest telescope, so I want 
there," he said. He studied physics, 
hoping to discover the whole truth 
about the world, but an encounter 
with Stringfellow Bare showed him 
the narrowness of the course of 
study he was pursuing. "I found 
I couldn't understand the things of 
the world, the laws of stuff, until 
I had found out what that beast 
called man had been up to all 
those years," he said. 

He then began his long program 
of independent study while at 

the same time fulfilling depart- 
mental requirements. "I don't 
believe in anyone being brighter 
than .others," he said. "It's a 
matter of motivation." His refusal 
to stick to one department got 
him in hot water a few times, both 
as student and teacher, until he 
settled at St. John's College with 
its non-departmental program. 
He remarked, "The more a place 
needs you the more eager they 
are to get rid of you." 

He said the best thing about 
Sewanee is "the presence of com- 
munity in the midst of a beautiful 
wilderness. Most colleges are not 
communities. They are communi- 
ties to the degree they have serious 
intellectual interests. I listen to 
students and faculty to see if they 
are talking about football, or about 
the things they study and read. 
If they are eating, sleeping, and 
talking about issues of intellectual 
importance, then I know they've 
been really motivated, they're on 
fire. And in that respect, Sewanee 
does very well." 

Face Issues 

Almost 100 trustees gathered April 
24-25 for the board's annual 

The overriding concern was the 
uncertain economy and financial 
health of the University. 

Al Roberts, chairman of the 
Board of Regents; the Rt. Rev. 
Furman S tough, University chan- 
cellor, and Vice-Chancellor Robert 
M. Ay res each spoke at length 
about University finances and fund- 
raising plans. 

Mr. Ayres said the budget 
figures would indicate Sewanee can 
complete the fiscal year with a 
balanced budget. Significant capital 
is needed to offset the continuing 
effect of inflation on the University 

The trustees passed a resolution 
recognizing the outstanding work 
of Dean John Webb as he nears 
retirement this year after 34 years 
teaching and serving in the College 
deans' offices. 

In another resolution, the 
Board of Trustees asked for more 
information to be supplied to it 
about the actions of the Board of 
Regents and annual report material 
before the trustees' meeting each

This summer will see 29 Sewanee 
students at home in England foj: 
a month where they are taking' 
the British Studies at Oxford pro- 
gram from July 13 to August 19 
at St. John's College. 

The program, for about 12$ 
students, is sponsored by the i 
Southern College University Union, 
a consortium of eight educational 
institutions, of which the Univer- 
sity of the South is a member. 

This year the theme of the 
program is "Britain in the Enlight-

Restoration of the Monarchy in 
1660 through the reign of George III. 
Two Sewanee professors, John 
Reishman and Dale Richardson, 
will be tutors in the program. Pro- 
fessor Reishman will give seminars 
on "The Literature of Thought and 
Feeling," a study of representative 
novels of Defoe, Fielding, Smollett, 
Sterne, and Austen, and on "Resto- 
ration and Eighteenth Century 
Drama." Professor Richardson's 
topic is "English Augustan Poetry 
and Prose," a study of the major 
works of Dryden, Swift, and Pope 
in the context of English literary 
and social history from 1660 to 

Other seminars are in art 
history, economics, government, 
history, literature, music history, 
and social history. 

Students take two of these 
seminars, each twice a week, and 
hear twice-daily lectures by distin- 
guished British authorities. In 
addition to attending lectures and 
seminars, students share morning 
coffee with tutors and distinguished 
lecturers, such as Dr. A. L. Rowse 
or Professor S. T. Bindoff, and dine 
with them at "high table" in the 
medieval Hall of St. John's. 

There is free time for reading, 
sports, or afternoon tea, and 
evenings for attending concerts, 
plays, or visiting Oxford's historic 
pubs. The schedule allows long 
weekends for exploring Oxford, 
London museums or theatres, near- 
by points of interest like Blenheim 
Palace or the Cotswolds, or even 
energetic trips to Cornwall or 
Scotland. Special visits to the uni- 
versities of Cambridge and Bristol 
have also been planned. 

Oak Ridge 

Three students in the College j 
spent their second semester doing', 
research projects at Oak Ridge i 
National Laboratory in a program 
cosponsored by the Department 
of Energy and the Southern Col- j 
lege University Union, of which 
Sewanee is a member. 

Andy Arbuckle, Jim Barfield, 
and Mary Huffman were among ;■ 
16 students from five states picked 
for the four-month program. 

The students participating have 
an opportunity for research and 
study in nuclear and engineering 
technology, advanced energy 
systems, and the physical, bio- 
medical and environmental sciences. 
Their research is carried out under 
the guidance of senior members 
of the ORNL staff. 

In addition to their research 
assignments, students attend 
weekly seminars and participate 
in a three-day course on radio- 
active isotope techniques conduct- 
ed by Oak Ridge Associated Uni- 

Arbuckle, a junior physics 
major from Columbia, Tennessee, 
used a computer and remote detec- 
tion instruments to analyze the 
temperature and rotation of plasma, 
or gas in an extremely compressed 
state. Plasma studies are being 
carried out as one method toward 
obtaining energy fairly cheaply. 

Barfield, a senior biology major 
from Gainesville, Georgia, was in- 
vestigating carcinogenesis in mice, 
particularly in leukemia caused by 

viruses and the role played by! 
proteins in the process. | 

Miss Huffman, a senior biology 
major from Portsmouth, Virgin^, 
studied the relation between preda- 
tors and prey in a reservoir eco- \ 

She also investigated the impact: 
of power plants on aquatic systems. 

Lytle Fund 

Friends and former students of 
Andrew Lytle have begun an effort 
to establish a Lytle Fund at the ' 
University. The fund would have 
several purposes. 

Maria Kirby-Smith, the daugh- 
ter of Col. and Mrs. Edmund Kirby- 
Smith of Sewanee, has sculpted a 
bust of Mr. Lytle which has so 
impressed the author and others at 
Sewanee that money is being 
sought to have the bust cast in 
bronze for a permanent display in 
duPont Library. 

Don DuPree of Sewanee, who 
is heading the project, said funds 
are also needed to commission Miss 
Kirby-Smith to do two resin-filled 
copies, one for the Lytle family and 
another for the Fugitive-Agrarian 
Room at Vanderbilt University. 
The busts would cost $1,500. 

Another $1,000 is being sought 
to establish a permanent book fund 
at duPont. 

Mr. DuPree said letters are 
being sent to persons who might be 
interested in contributing, but he 
believed an additional number of 
interested persons may have been 
overlooked. All contributions will 
be gratefully accepted, he said. 

They should be marked for the 
Andrew Lytle fund and sent to 
Mr. DuPree or Beeler Brush, direc- 
tor of the Associated Alumni. 

Mr. DuPree also said this fund 
is not connected with the Million 
Dollar Program, and persons who 
give tq the MDP each year should 
not consider a gift to the Lytle 
fund as a substitute for that gift. 

More Music 
this Summer 

A Sewanee summer has become 
almost indistinguishable from the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center, 
which begins its 24th season 
June 21. 

The excellence of the center's 
students and faculty has made it 
one of the best training programs 
in the world for young instrumental- 
ists, and the faculty this year has 
some extra international flavor. 

German-born pianist Andreas 
Klein; violinist Yair Kless, a native 
and resident of Israel, and Yoshiko 

Continued on next page 

Murakami, who began studying 
piano at the age of three in Japan, 
are a few of the outstanding per- 
formers who will be in residence for 
the five-week program. 

Martha McCrory, SSMC direc- 
tor, has attracted several new and 
excellent faculty members but 
expressed special satisfaction that 
nine of them are former Music 
Center students. 

Three concert orchestras will 
be formed from the 200 students 
and nearly 30 faculty members. 
Concerts will be held each weekend 
through the concluding gala con- 
cert festival which will begin July 
24 and end July 27. 

The opening concert, June 22, 
will be a pops concert conducted 
by Amerigo Marino. The center 
will also welcome piano soloist 
William Ransom of Nashville, a 
recent graduate of the Juilliard 
School in New York and a former 
student of five summers at the 
Summer Music Center. 

Summer concert schedules are 
available, and interested persons are 
urged to write the office of the 
Sewanee Summer Music Center in 

Other visiting conductors for 
this summer's concerts include 
Henri Temianka, the internationally 
acclaimed conductor of the Cali- 
fornia Chamber Symphony; Joel 
Lazar, newly appointed music di- 
rector and conductor of the Tulsa 
Philharmonic; and Pamela Gearhart, 
conductor of the Ithaca College 

The Summer Music Center is 
not only national, even inter- 
national in its appeal, but current- 
ly more students come from 
outside of Tennessee than live 
in the state. Far from being a 
camp for youngsters, the center 
provides intensive training and is 
attracting a growing number of 
college-age students. College 
credit is offered by the University 
for SSMC study. 

The training is for orchestral 
instrumentalists and includes reper- 
toire, chamber music, and private 
study. An important feature of 
the Sewanee Center is that each 
student has numerous opportuni- 
ties to perform before audiences 
in solo and as part of a chamber 

An adjunct to the Music Center 
is the SSMC String Camp, which is 
beginning its fourth season this 
month. The camp, held from June 
22 to June 29, is for elementary 
string students, ages 10-12. The 
director this year is Henry Hamp- 
ton of Nashville. 

Sewanee Summer Seminar 

Henri Temianka is one of the Sewanee Summer Music 
Center's guest conductors again this year. 

Seminar '80 
Still Open 

Another of the Sewanee Summer 
Seminars, which have been enjoyed 
in past years by alumni, Episco- 
palians, or just people with an 
interest in continuing their learning, 
is set for July 13-19. 

Lectures this summer will be on 
anthropology, literary criticism of 
English poems, the fall of the 
British empire, the 1980 presidential 
election, investments, and Ameri- 
can Indian artifacts. 

Cost of $225 includes room, 
board and tuition for the week. 
Rates are available for room and 
board for family members ($140), 
or for tuition only ($95) for those 
who have their own arrangements 
for room and board. 

There will again be an educa- 
tional and entertaining children's 
program, with evening babysitting 
provided. Family field trips and 
plenty of free time for relaxing, as 
well as concerts of the Sewanee 
Summer Music Center, will be 
options in addition to the lectures 
and discussions. 

Faculty of the seminar are 
Gilbert Gilchrist, professor of politi- 
cal science; Richard O'Connor, 
assistant professor of anthropology ; 

Douglas Paschall, assistant professor 
of English and associate dean of the 
College; Harry Yeatman, professor 
of biology ; and Charles Perry, assis- 
tant professor of history. 

Director of the Seminar is 
Edwin Stirling, associate professor 
of English. Inquiries may be sent 
to Dr. Stirling at the University. 
A $50 deposit is required for regis- 

Faculty and students of the 
Seminar eat together in the dining 
hall, and all participants and their 
families live in Malon Courts Hall. 
Some develop lasting friendships 
and have returned again and again 
for the mix of intellectual stimu- 
lation and physical relaxation. 

Eye Opening 

An auditorium full of business men, 
historians, and economists gathered 
at the University on April 4 and 5 
to examine the neglected field of 
Southern business history in the first 
Sewanee Economics Symposium. 

Conference coordinator Marvin 
Goodstein, professor of economics, 
outlined the extensive scope of the 
conference, saying that previous 
understanding of Southern business 
history had the simplistic idea 
that "First there was slavery, then 
there was reconstruction, then 
there was Disney World." 

Some new ways of looking at 
history were advanced. Speakers in 
the panel ''The Early Problems'? 
tackled the assumption that the 
South had been economically back- 
ward because of its. emphasis on 
agriculture rather than manufac- 
turing. '". 

: Thomas Weiss of the University ;; 
of Kansas said that even in ante 
bellum days returns were greater 
in industry than In agriculture, 
but the Speakers attributed the lack 
of interest in industry on the part 
of the wealthy.planters to thefact 
that planters had Social status and, 
industrialists did not. 

Harold Woodman of Purdue 
University said when slavery was 
abolished northerners had certain 
ideas about how southerners would 
behave. "Southerners refused to 
act like they were supposed to," 
he said. 

Stanley Engerman of the Uni- 
versity of Rochester described the 
gradual switch from white to slave 
labor in the early tobacco business 
in terms of immigration patterns 
and the drying up of the source 
of indentured servants formerly 

Gavin Wright of the University 
of Michigan examined the question 
of whether industrial development 
by its nature wouid have ended 
slavery .and racial discrimination.

He said students of South African: 
apartheid today would do well to , 
study the American South around! 
the time of the Civil War. He also 
gave examples of what he called . 
"horizontal discrimination" in that; 
steel and tobacco workers were 
mostly black and cotton mill \, 
■workers ivere mostly white', even i' 
in the same town. '■ '■ 

Jack Blicksilver of Georgia 
State University described the his- 
tory of a southern firm, Life of 
Georgia, from its beginnings as a 
small local insurance company with 
a capital of $400 to a multimillion 
dollar corporation. More recent 
population changes and relative.*' 
income among regions of the United 
States were discussed ibyvBernara 

Weinstein of the University of 
Texas at Dallas. 

Clarence Danhof of Sangamon 
State University discussed results 
of research he has done on charac- 
teristics of southern business 
leaders. Education showed up as an 
important element in these leaders' 

A panel of business executives 
then gave their opinions on what 
the future holds for southern 
business. Henry C. Goodrich of 
Birmingham, president of Southern 
Natural Resources, said that whUe 
in the past southern industry has 
been dependent on cheap labor and 
natural resources, in the future we 
will see a rise in service industries 
such as banking, recreation, and 
energy production. 

W. T. Beebe, chairman of the 
board of Delta Airlines, was also 
optimistic about the future, and 
said the South can be a "world 
center." Noting that others had 
talked of corporate growth, he said 
"We must do all we can to create 
an environment of growth for 
the individual." 

Paul N. Howell of Houston, 
president of the Howell Corpora- 
tion, also put emphasis on the 
individual and called for a balance 
between material and humanistic 

How businessrecords are being 
kept was the concern of a final 
panel consisting of Herman Freu- 
denberger of Tulane University, 
Edie Hedlin of the National Histori- 
cal Publications and Records Com- 
mission, and Philip Mooney, 
manager of archives services for 
the Coca-Cola Company. Work 
being done by these' panelists will 
assure a continuing supply of raw 
material for future Sewanee Eco- 
nomics Symposiums.

a member of Alpha Tau Omega 
fraternity, and is the son of Mr. 
and Mrs. W. T. Minor, Jr. of

Lindsay is a former editor of 
the Sewanee Purple and has worked 
on the staff of the Mountain Goat. 
She is a Wilkins Scholar, served on 
the proctor selection committee, 
and was recent chairman of the 
commencement committee. 

A political science major, she 
attended the London School of 
Economics last fall and worked 
for a member of Parliament. She 
is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles K. Coates. 

"I believe the function of the 
Order of Gownsmen is to bring 
attention to pertinent issues and 
explore, through task forces, all 
the options for the administration, 
faculty , students, and community," 
she said. 

Also elected to office in the 
Student Assembly are Mary Cook 
of Dallas, Texas, secretary, and 
Larry Williams of Versailles, Ken- 
tucky, treasurer. Each of the 
officers is a rising senior. 

The New Goat 

The Mountain Goat is back. No, 
not an endangered species of 
wildlife, nor the old train which 
daily climbed the Mountain from 
Cowan, but a semi-annual student 
literary magazine which has been 
re-established at Sewanee. 

Edited and produced by Uni- 
versity students, the Mountain Goat 
was first published in 1924 and was 
modeled after such famous maga- 
zines as Punch and Harvard Lam- 
poon. The Goat flourished for 
nearly forty years, but student 
interest began to fade in the early 
1970s, and the fall of '73 found 
the magazine without an editorial 

However, in 1978 four students, 
Peggy Barr, Lee Taylor, Chris Stuart 

Student trustees Bruce Dobie and 
Caroline Hopper before the recent 
trustees' meeting 

and Anderson Douglass, brought a 
motion before the student govern- 
ment that the Mountain Goat be 
re-established and granted a charter. 
The motion passed: the charter 
and by-laws were approved and the 
Mountain Goat was granted partial 
funding by the student activities 
fee committee. 

Thus it was that Sewanee's 
student literary magazine was 
reborn. Two years later, the Goat 
has a circulation of about 250 and 
is increasing rapidly. Subscribers 
range from students to faculty to 

Some aspects of the Mountain 
Goat have changed since its first 
beginnings; it no longer publishes 
satire or political humor and it 
accepts submissions from faculty 
and community members as well as 
from students. Others have re- 
mained basically the same; it is 
still semi-annual, and students still 
edit and produce the magazine 
themselves. Most of all, the Moun- 
tain Goat remains dedicated to 
excellence in creative literary ex- 
pression on the Mountain. 

Subscriptions cost $2 a year 
and may be obtained by writing 
The Mountain Goat, Sewanee, 
Tennessee. Back issues as late as 
May 1978 are available for $1 each.

The book would be delightful 
no matter who had written it, but 
the author is a Sewanee alumnus, 
Richard Mitchell, C'47. Professor 
Mitchell is teaching at Glassboro 
State College in New Jersey but is 
making larger waves as editor of 
a little four-page journal called the 
Underground Grammarian and now 
as an author of books. 

The Grammarian was started by 
Professor MetcheU in 1976 when he 
decided he could stand no longer 
the flow of confusing and illogical. ,, i 
rhetoric that regularly crossed his 
desk from administrators and 
fellow academics, not to mention 
the gibberish of the bureaucracy. 
The Grammarian, printed on an 
old letterpress in his basement, 
pounces on fuzzy words and 
thoughts with Menckenian delight 
and spares no one. 

We had a note about Mitchell 
and the Grammarian a year or two 
ago when someone sent us a news- 
paper clipping about him. Then 
recently People magazine published 
a short article about the "prof," 
who, it noted, was a Phi Beta 
Kappa graduate of the University 
of the South. 

Back to the book: Less than 
Words Can Say (Little, Brown and 
Company; 224 pages; $8.95) should 
be especially good reading to Sewa- 
nee alumni who can recall having 
English papers figuratively (perhaps) 
ripped apart for allowing "eloquent" 
but meaningless phrases which 
seemed to say so much but did 
not say anything, much less any- 
thing important. 

There are also many of us who 
recall our undergraduate (and 
graduate) years elsewhere when we 
fancied it an art to say as little as 
possible (for that is all we knew) in 
as many words as possible. If it 
were done skillfully enough the 
professor might actually believe 
he was reading something signifi- 
cant (we thought) or in despair 
move on to a more concise paper 
and give us the higher grade as a 
benefit of the doubt. 

To Professor Mitchell, such 
corruption is far more critical than 
a waste of paper and time for 
teachers and those who have to 
read the work of bureaucrats. 
The corruption of language, he 
emphasizes, leads to clouded logic 
and muddled minds. Far more 
than being a problem of the class- 
room, it has become a national 
tragedy. Professor Mitchell's little 
book is a call to arms for those of 
us who love the English language 
and those who love and depend 
upon clear thinking. — L.D. 

New Newsletter 

An interdepartmental newsletter, 
"Literature at Sewanee," has been 
published for the first time this 
fall and is a collection of material 
about all the literature programs of 
the College. 

Jacqueline Schaefer, professor 
of French, said such a newsletter is 
unique at Sewanee, and to her 

knowledge nothing like it has been 
published anywhere else. News- 
letters are usually departmental, 
not interdepartmental, because rival- 
ry often interferes. 

Broadway in Sewanee 

One of the major events of this very 
hectic spring was a performance 
of the musical Guys and Dolls by 
the Purple Masque. Richard L. 
Homan, assistant professor of 
speech and theatre, directed the 
production. Tne leads were played 
by Bernie Ellis, Judy O'Brien, and 
Mike Marchetti, all students, and 
Ann Galvin Homan of Sewanee. 
Students and faculty members did 
outstanding jobs in supporting 
roles, and they left the audience 
standing at the end. 

Wood Lecture 

The Michael Harrah Wood Lecture 
this spring was delivered by Hugh 
Trevor-Roper, regius professor of 
modern history and Fellow of 
Oriel College, Oxford. The title 
of his lecture was "Hitler's German 
Revolution." Extra chairs had to 
be gathered at the last minute as 
the audience grew to capacity in 
Convocation Hall. 

Fereydoun Hoveyda, former Iranian ambassador to the 
United Nations, spoke at Sewanee, sponsored by the 
Student Forum, and drew a large crowd including several 
media representatives. 

Faculty Notes 

The Rev. Charles Kiblinger, Univer- 
sity chaplain, will be returning to 
Sewanee in July after spending 
more than a semester in England. 
He has been studying the Gospel of 
St. John at Oxford and serving 
as vicar of a church in New Hinksey, 

William M. (Mac) Priestley, associ- 
ate professor of mathematics, had 
to cancel his Fulbright-Hays lec- 
tureship to the Soviet Union this 
spring due to the crisis in Afghanis- 
tan. He had been invited to lecture 
on his work in Markovian semi- 
groups on Noncommutative C* 
algebras. His introductory calculus 
text. Calculus: An Historical Ap- 
proach, published last year by 
Springer-Verlag, is being used at 

An article by William B. Guenther, 
chairman of the chemistry de- 
partment, titled "A New Method 
for Homogeneous Precipitation of 
Nickel," has been published by 
Analytical Letters. The article is the 
result of research with students 
over the past five years to find a 
highly accurate method for the 
nickel in stainless steel analysis. 

Robert Keele, professor of politi- 
cal science, on sabbatical leave 
this past semester, has been exam- 
ining and evaluating the formal and 
informal processes by which Ten- 
nessee judges are chosen. He is 
looking at the relative influences 
of the governor, nominating com- 
mittees, political leaders, and 

George Core, editor of the Sewanee 
Review and associate professor of 
English, was among the writers 
speaking this spring at a conference 
of the Tennessee College Associa- 
tion and the Tennessee Committee 
for the Humanities. His topic was 
"Tne Literary Marketplace and the 
Southern Writer Today." Professor 
Core is the editor of two books 
about Southern American literature, 
and his articles have appeared in a 
number of literary journals. At 
present he is editing an edition of 
John Crowe Ransom's letters and 
writing a study of Malcolm Cowley. 
Other Tennessee writers participa- 
ting in tne conference were Wilma 
Dykeman, Madison Jones, Robert 
Drake, and Richard Beale Davis. 

Among his other projects this past 
semester, Scott Bates, professor of 
French, observed the centenary of 
French poet Guillaume Apollinaire 
by delivering papers on the writer 
at Columbia University, the Uni- 
versity of California at Santa 
Barbara, and the Modem Language 
Association meeting at San Fran- 
cisco. He was asked to give papers 
in Belgium, Rome, Warsaw, and 
Paris but declined. Professor Bates 
is the compiler of the new critical 
bibliography of Apollinaire in the 
Cabeen Bibliography of Twentieth 
Century French Literature and the 
author of the article on Apollinaire 
in The Encyclopedia of Twentieth 
Century Literature to appear this 

Thomas Spaccarelli, assistant pro- 
fessor of Spanish, has been awarded 
a summer stipend by the National 
Endowment for the Humanities 
to finish his edition and study of 
a medieval Spanish romance about 

Charles Peyser, associate professor 
of psychology, was the author of 
a recent article on fraternity hazing, 
based on a study he helped conduct 
among members of Lambda Chi 

Alpha. The continuing study was 
solicited by the fraternity's Task 
Force on Hazing, which was formed 
three years ago to tackle the 
problem. Professor Peyser's article 
pinpoints several problem areas and 
explains recommendations accepted 
by the task force. The thrust of 
the study is to have the under- 
graduates themselves define hazing, 
which they have done in very strict 
terms. A Lambda Chi himself, 
Professor Peyser has served the 
Sewanee chapter and the national 
organization in several capacities 
and is currently a member of the 
graduate scholarship awards com- 
mittee of the Lambda Chi Alpha 
Educational Foundation. 

Dale and Leslie Richardson have 
spent the semester in England, 
living in a cozy house in the ceme- 
tery wall at Highgate. Highgate 
is laden with literary references. 
Professor Richardson, chairman of 
the English department, has been 
studying Shakespeare and this 
summer will be teaching in the 
English Studies at Oxford program. 
Mrs. Richardson, an instructor in 
Italian, has been studying Italian 
in University College at the Uni- 
versity of London. 

Clay C. Ross, associate professor 
of mathematics and director of 
academic computing, is ending his 
sabbatical leave after studying and 
teaching at the University of 
Missouri at Rolla. 

John Flynn, associate professor of 
history, will be ending his sabbati- 
cal leave in Brussels this summer 
where he has been studying the 
economic and political history of 
20th century Western Europe and 
doing research for a paper dealing 
with the restoration of the gold 
standard in Belgium in 1926. In 
the fall Professor Flynn will be 
giving a paper titled, "The Split in 
the National Liberal Caucus Over 
the Military Budget Bill of 1971," 
for a panel organized by the South- 
em Historical Association dealing 
with institutional and party de- 
velopments in Imperial Germany. 

Timothy Keith-Lucas, assistant pro- 
fessor of psychology, has spent 
the past semester on leave, working 
in the animal behavior laboratory 
at Duke University. 

William Clarkson, assistant profes- 
sor of English, has been on sab- 
batical leave second semester, in 
part studying Ezra Pound, Dante, 
and Italian literature in Florence, 

Three Decades of Change 

His even temper and wry, spon- 
taneous sense of humor are famous 
on the Mountain, and nothing has 
happened this year in the dean's 
office to diminish that reputation. 

John M. Webb, who retires 
this summer, has spent the year 
quieting wrath and conjuring solu- 
tions as if he had always been dean 
of the College. The fact is, Dean 
Webb has spent most of his 34 
years at Sewanee in the dean's 
office. His titles and responsibilities 
there have changed so much he was 
prompted to say in a recent speech 
to the Alumni Council, "The Uni- 
versity has finally decided what to 
do with me." 

With Dean Webb's retirement, 
W. Brown Patterson, Jr., C'52, will 
become dean of the College. 

Dean Webb is a Nashville native 
who came to Sewanee, which he 
had never before seen, in 1946. 
He was "straight out of the Army," 
five years of service, during which 
he had reached the rank of captain 
of field artillery, fought in Europe, 
and spent five months in a prisoner- 
of-war camp in Germany. 

A large group of married stu- 
dents were housed in the old 
hotel, "with antediluvian wiring," 
in the Monteagle Assembly 
Grounds, while old barracks were 
being renovated in Woodlands. 
Some began to find places with 
faculty. Wallace Westfeldt and 
his wife stayed with the Webbs 
that year. 

Dean Webb was teaching both 
history and political science in the 
1940s but soon was teaching 
history exclusively. Recently he 
recalled Walsh Hall before its 
renovation as a "charming sort of 
barn." His office was on the third 
floor then, and he said the floor 
slanted such that he had to brace 
himself against his desk or he would 
have rolled out the door. 

During the Korean War when 
ROTC prevented what many feared 
would be another exodus of stu- 
dents, he was working on his 
dissertation. In 1954 he received 
his Ph.D. from Duke University, 
where he had done his under- 
graduate work. (He had received 
an M.A. from Yale.) 

In 1955 Dean Webb became 
acting dean of men during a Ful- 
bright Lecture trip of Robert Lan- 
caster. It was soon after that that 
Dean Webb also became the first 
associate director of admissions. 
Then in 1957, he became dean 
of men when Dean Lancaster be- 
came dean of the College. He 
held that position until 1974 when 
he became associate dean, which 

he remained until being named 
dean of the College last year. 
Dean Webb had a break as dean of 
men when from 1964 to 1966 he 
was acting dean of the College. 
Recalling the students of his 
early years at Sewanee, Dean Webb 
says they were a bit older than 
typical college students. 

"They were hungry," he said. 
"In many respects they were more 
hard working than any we have had 
since. They played hard too. They 
did not particularly stand in awe of 
their teachers." 

Enrollment was running a bit 
under 500, and in the 1950s the 
ambition was to get above that 

"When we hit 500, it was as if 
we had broken a barrier," Dean 
Webb said. "The next year enroll- 
ment went -well above 500 and 
continued to grow." 

During this period most of the 
dormitories were being built. The 
burden on the dean of men con- 
tinued to grow. 

Those times reminded Dean 
Webb of his initial experience as 
dean of men: "The social life of 
the campus was quite a surprise. 
I did not know if this was open 
rebellion or if it was normal." 

He said the group entering 
college in the 1960s, especially 

the late '60s, would ask reasons 
for decisions. 

The '50s and the restless 
'60s were overshadowed only 
by the decade of the '70s and 
the admission of women. 

"Women students required 
quite a bit of thought on the part 
of the deans and faculty," Dean 
Webb said in the tone of an under- 

But he believes the changes in 
the attitude of students were 
more significant in some respects 
than the mere presence of women. 
"It is probably a coincidence, 
but we began to treat undergradu- 
ates more as young adults than 
as kids," he said. 

The dean of men once had the 
responsibility to oversee chapel 
attendance and a restrictive policy 
of class attendance. The process 
of counting up days at the end 
of the semester stirred up a fair 
amount of interest and all sorts 
of stories. 

Although the system was elim- 
inated under growing pressure from 
students and faculty, Dean Webb 
recalls some of its distinct advan- 

"There is now practically no 
occasion when everyone comes 
together at one time," he said. 

"When chapel was required, Tues- 
day was a time everybody was 
expected to be in chapel to hear 
announcements. It was a time 
when students heard from the 
deans and administrators. It helped 
build morale." 

The chapel service was a short- 
ened version of Morning Prayer 
led by a clergyman and made a 
greater impression on the mind 
than similar events Dean Webb re- 
members at other schools. 

The dean of men also saw more 
students in his office, particularly 
the students with attendance prob- 
lems — often the same ones having 
other problems. 

"It was a good way to get to 
know everybody," he said. 

"The quality of academic work 
and the tone of the campus 
changed in the '60s. I think the 
students work harder,' i said. 
"We don't have as many does con- 
tent to get by with C-minus averages 
and figure that is what a gentleman 
is supposed to do. 

"That part of college is gone. 
Students have a consuming interest 
in grades and point averages. There 
are students who in some respects 
are over-achievers," he 6aid. 

Dean Webb said the faculty 
compares favorably with the 
faculty of 30 years ago. The current 
faculty may be more "energetic" 
and have greater interests in re- 
search and publications and in 
getting grants to carry on their 
work. Nevertheless, in some respects 
they are also more available to 

"We have not had the Sunday 
night meetings, but the fact is there 
is much more to do now on Sun- 
day nights," he said. "There has 
been some renewal of Sunday 
night visits, but it takes a lot of 
effort on the part of students and 

Dean Webb will be remember- 
ed by most working behind his 
desk in lower Walsh Hall or pre- 
siding diplomatically before faculty 
meetings or in committees. He has 
been active too in the community 
as president of the EQB Club and 
Civic Association, as a member of 
the County Court and the County 
Draft Board, and as a member of 
the boards of Emerald-Hodgson 
Hospital and Franklin County 


Poems by Richard Tillinghast 

Drawings by Edward Carlos 


Evening comes on. I put on a clean white shirt 

and feel how well it fits me. I pour bourbon, 

with spring water from a plastic jug, 

and look out sliding glass doors 

at green suburban hills blurred with smog. 

Two watches lie on the table before me: 

one set for now, one telling time in 1938, 

their glass faces reflecting the round California sky. 

The man I see through the eye of the second watch 

sits in a silence too deep for my nerves 

and stares out at twilight 

fading on trunks of pine and oak. 

The black Model-A car rusts into the stream 

that runs past his cabin in Lost Cove, Tennessee. 

He reaches for the whiskey on the table, 

and his sleeve clears a path through pine-needles and dust. 

The coal that tumbles out of his. hillside 
soils the air and brick houses in Nashville. 
Words burn in the rain there 
from the power of water that runs past his door. 
He looks at his watch and turns. -on the radio, 
The music reaches him, all the wayfrom Nashville. 
He holds his glass of whiskey up to the light 
that is almost gone. Its color suits his thoughts. 


The fiddles and autoharp fill up the dark room 

and push out through paint-blackened screens 

into black oaks that press against the house. 

His face hurts me. It doesn't look right. 

He goes against the grain 

of whiskey he has made himself, and rides 

the wire-song of a steel guitar through small towns, 

through the bug-crowded air of farm-crossings late at night. 

The disembodied, high guitar-line swims in his nerves 

like a salmon up a flint-rock stream, 

falls like a hawk on blood. 

The whiskey bums and soothes. 

His tongue starts to move to the words of the song: 

trains and big woods and bottomless rivers, 

hard drinking, broken hearts, and death. 

His blood knows whose song this is. 

He's never swum in no bottomless river, 

or rode that night train to Memphis, 

or sat and stared at those thirteen unlucky bars. 

But he sees the moon rise, with the Rose of San Antone 

tattooed on it in blood. 

A waitress in Denver glides toward him with drinks on a tray. 

He stumbles, drunk, through strange woods by an airport 

and walks out in San Francisco with a gun in his pocket. . . . 

The moon sets, over hills cold and unfamiliar. 

I shut off the radio, and hear the sea-roar of the freeway. 

Who is this man I have dreamed up? 

I cork the bottle, and get up and lock the door.

Summer i 

rin, and the voices of children 
from another room. 
Old friends from summers past, 
we drink old whiskey and talk about ghosts. 
The rain ebbs, rattles the summer cottage roof, 
soaks the perished leaves in wooden gutters, 
then gusts and 

drowns our fond talk. 
It's really coming down, we chatter, 

as though rain sometimes rose. 
The power fails. 

We sit under darkness, under the heavy storm. 
Our children— frightened, laughing- 
run in to be beside us. 

The weak lights surge on. 

We see each other's children newly. 

How they've grown! we prose 

with conventional smiles, acceptingly commonplace, 

as they go back to playing. 
Yet growing is what a child does. 

And ourselves? 

You haven't changed a bit, 

we not exactly lie, 
meaning the shock is not so great 

as we'd expected. 
ItVthe tired look around the eyes, 
the flesh a little loose on the jaw. . . 

Your oldest daughter's a senior at Yale. 

We're like our grandparents and our parents now, 

shocked by the present: 
A buggy without a horse to pull it? 

A man on the moon? 
Girls at Yale? 
We say goodnight. I can hardly lift 

my young son anymore 
as I carry him to the car asleep. 

The rain comes down, comes down, comes down. 
One would think it would wear the earth away. 
You told us about a skeleton 

you awoke seeing— 
the dawn light on the bone. 
It wakes me this morning early. 
But I'm sure it wasn t a ghost, you said 

in your sensible way. 
It was just my terrible fear of death. ■ 

Rain roars on the broad oak leaves 
and wears away the limestone. 

I smell the mildewed bindings 
of books I bought as a student. 

How shabby, how pathetic they look now 
as they stand there on their shelves unread! 

Children are all that matters, you said 
last night, and I agreed. 

The children's play -song— repetitive, inane- 
keeps sounding in my head. 

I get up— last night's spirits alive 
this morning in my blood— 

and write these perishing words down 

in the voice of summer rain.

I wanted to get you a picture of the room 

where the two of them sat always 

in the dimness of things: the windowseat clouded 

by a shorted lamp, the samovar 

thick with tea, outdated railway passes 

catnip mouse, books piled against the nailed-up door— 

Those were some of the things. One of them would strike 

days off in bunches, always behind, remarking 

"First day of winter," "President Harding 

bom, 1865." The other one 

would sometimes weep over the spectacle, and check 

lists arranged for errands repeatedly begun. 

Sometimes when water trembled in the drains 

and drugs or lack of supper burned the world's dust away, 

they saw things their way till the yellow day 

and wandered the elated gardens. But mostly 

the cat crumpled cellophane 

and someone went down for groceries. 

No mail came, no offers. Stories below, pedestrians 
inched their way antlike through snow that fanned 
the vague streetlights with a flutter and stabbing stroke. 
No one came stamping through the door, up stairs 
and trembling corridors to where 
they sat smoking and dazzling the room with talk.

Steamboat Sewanee 

The Rev. M. Clark Baker, C'55, 
gave me the December issue of the 
Sewanee News because of the 
picture of the steamer Sewanee 
that appeared on page four. 

J am particularly interested in 
old steamboats of the Mississippi 
and its tributaries because I do 
consulting work in this field for 
museums, as well as build models 
of various river craft. 

The Sewanee was a wooden 
hulled, steam powered, sternwheel 
towboat built in 1904 at Patterson, 
Louisiana. Her hull measured 116 
by 25 by 3.2 feet. She was orig- 
inally owned by the F. B. Williams 
Cypress Company of Patterson, 
Louisiana, and later by R. D. 
McKneely of Morgan City, Louisiana. 

Evidently the boat spent time 
towing sugar on the Ouachita 
River in 1932, and even came up 
the Ohio to Louisville, Kentucky, 
in the same year with two barges 
of sugar. 

The boat finally bumed at 
Patterson, Louisiana, on November 

A cursory review of my files 
for 1904-1912 indicates that the 
boat did not come to Memphis or 
above. I presume that this boat 
was mainly one that worked the 
bayous and backwaters of Louisi- 
ana during her 28 years of activity.

/ appreciated the cover article in 
the latest Sewanee News on the 
impact of women on Sewanee. I 
was disappointed, though, to find 
so little mention of the role played 
by the students at Sewanee before 
that historic September, 1969. 
Such references as are made con- 
cern fringe attitudes and events: 
the desire to preserve the quality 
of the men 's choir, riotous party 
weekends, etc. The fact that so 
little mention of including women 
in the student body appeared in 
the Sewanee Purple can be attribu- 
ted to the fact that it was a non 
issue. Very few students thought 
it worth debating. One could 
have found more students willing 
to speak in favor of the food at 
Gailor Hall than opposed to the 
admission of women. I was present, 
as chapel sacristan, at Bishop 
Jones' address to the trustees 
before Commencement, 1968; he 
recognized in that address the 
compelling role of the students in 
shaping the policy which was 
being pursued. 

For many of us in the days 
before women were admitted to 
Sewanee, our return to the Moun- 
tain in autumn began a period 
of depression characterized by 
the question, "What am I doing 
here?" The fact that we knew the 
answers (the beauty of the place, 
the love of the academic com- 
munity, etc.) did little to reduce 
the strain of living in an unnatural 
community. The unnatural aspect 
extended far beyond social con- 
sideration; in a seat of learning, the 
absence of the viewpoints which 
our female colleagues were subse- 
quently to express was intolerable. 
Those of us blessed with being at 
Sewanee during the historic transi- 
tion had the truth of our former 
lack borne out daily. It was a rich 
and rewarding time, bright spring 
after a dreary winter. 

William C. Bennett, C'70 
Aurora, Colorado 


On page eight of the March edition 
of the Sewanee News an "editorial- 
ette" appeared by Mrs. Anna 
Thomas Durham Windrow, a class- 
mate of mine. In all candor the 
piece was somewhat disheartening. 

I remember the former Miss 
Durham as a genteel figure, born 
and bred of the best Middle Ten- 
nessee stock. I am terribly afraid 
she "toughened up " far too much, 
she has been careless in her choice 
of words. 

I am sure Mrs. Windrow will 
concur with me when I say that in 
1969 I felt that the admission of 
women to the College of Arts and 
Sciences was a mistake. I have 
since realized the wisdom of the 
move. However, that is not to say 
that I or the male student body 
was resentful, snobbish, or domi- 
nating. Those times, ten years ago, 
were certainly marked by dis- 
agreement and disharmony but 
not by confrontation and dislike 
as the tenor of Mrs. Windrow's 
piece would indicate. 

I regret the myopic tone of 
Mrs. Windrow's article in particular 
and the remainder of the piece 
on women at Sewanee in general. 
Those of us who have been so close 
to special events should exert 
ourselves to preserve them in a 
pristine light for those who follow.

The March 1980 issue of the 
Sewanee News should have been 
entitled "The Selling of the Femi- 
nization of Sewanee. " Although 

the issue was a valiantly defensive, 
well-prepared effort, it could not 
shroud the sad reality that there 
is little left for me to identify 
with the Sewanee that I knew. 

Would not a more honest 
public relations approach be to 
emphasize something akin to Dr. 
Gilchrist's assessment that there 
is now a "healthier and happier" 
social life at the University and 
stop the pretense that Sewanee's 
pre-1969 traditions are marching 
on as if nothing had happened? 

I really gagged on the brief 
word picture of the Sewanee 
student (male or female?) who 
reportedly responded to the moun- 
tain visitor's comment, "I suppose 
all the old traditions are gone, " 
with the pompous reply, "None 
that matter." That had to be

Fine Work 

/ could not let this recent issue 
(March 1980) go by without 
commending you on the superb 
style and quality of the Sewanee 
News. It is truly first rate. 

As an alumnus of nearly six 
years, I tell you I've never found 
greater enjoyment in reading a 
University publication. The organi- 
zation, depth of reporting and 
timeliness of the articles have 
reaffirmed my belief that the 
Sewanee News shares with its 
student body "a healthy sense 
of restlessness" about life at the 
University of the South. 

Speaking for all your readers, 
keep up the fine work!

Recalling '68 

It was called to our attention that 
a statement published in the March 
issue of the Sewanee News by 
Thomas H. Pope appeared to be 

Mr. Pope said the Board of 
Trustees voted to admit women to 
the College at its 1968 meeting 
after asking Bishop Frank A. Juhan 
about a large gift to the University. 

While the trustees could have 
asked about the gift before Bishop 
Juhan's death on December 31, 

1967, Mr. Pope corrected himself 
in a recent letter: 

"If Bishop Juhan died on De- 
cember 31, 1967, then he certainly 
was not at the meeting of the 
Board of Trustees in 1968, and I 
am in error in referring to question- 
ing h im. 

"I have a vivid recollection of 
his statement to the 1967 meeting 
of the Board of Trustees and until 
I got your letter, I was sure that he 
was present at the 1968 meeting. 
Apparently, the questions were 
asked of the Vice-Chancellor and 
not Bishop Juhan, and lam in error 
in mentioning him in connection 
with the 1968 meeting. 

"The fact remains that he did 
stop us in our tracks at the 1967 
meeting, and since no gift had 
materialized by the next annual 
meeting^ we were able to open 
admission to women. " 

In the March issue of the Sewanee 
News, we published a story about a 
gift to the University from Mrs. 
Nick B. Williams of Laguna Beach, 
California. The gift was made in 
honor of her husband. 

The story went a step further 
and made a special tribute to Mr. 
Williams' memory. Mr. Williams, 
however, was not, nor is, just a 
memory, to which the following 
letter, written in answer to an 
apology, can attest: 


/ think that "other famous news- 
paperman" who once said "The 
reports of my death are greatly 
exaggerated" was Mark Twain, 
though maybe it was Ambrose 
Bierce, whose death, if he died at 
all, has never been verified. Bierce, 
author of "The Devil's Dictionary " 
and a Californiqn, headed south 
in 1 91 7 to report on Pancho Villa 's 
personal revolution in Mexico— 
and was heard from no more. 

My wife Barbara has survived 
the rumor that she had become a 
widow and I have been given a new 
lease on life by my delight at being 
mourned so vigorously. Not every 
man has that chance. It is rewarding. 
And if indeed there are contribu- 
tions in my memory, for God's sake 
keep them. There couldn't be 
many— my class ('26) must average 
well into their seventies. 

All the best — with Heaven still

The Professor's Image 

by Richard A. O'Connor 

Richard O'Connor has been an assistant profes- 
sor of anthropology at Sewanee for two years, 
coming to the University shortly after leaving 
Cornell. University where he received his M.A. 
and Ph.D. degrees. His essay is drawn from his 
personal experiences as a student and teacher as 
well as his knowledge of anthropology. —Ed. 

Having been a student for so many years, I 
suddenly find myself a teacher. Of course I 
know I am the same person. At least I think 
I am, but my students seem to see someone else. 

We pretty much agree on who I am phys- 
ically. I probably remembered more hair than 
they see; they probably make me a bit taller 
than I am. But we differ on who I am personally. 
Somehow the students flatten my many faceted 
self-image into a single simplified actor— a 
professor. ; 

Certainly students know professors differ. 
They are hard or easy, dull or interesting, 
strict or "laid back," fair or unfair. No one 
knows exactly what elusive combination of 
these make a "good teacher," though they know 
what they like. Their labeling places me as a 
professor among other professors, but it also 
marks the boundaries of what they see in me. 
I am less than a whole person. My good days 
and my bad days come out as just another class. 
The lectures that fill me with enthusiasm and 
ones that just fill class time somehow disappear 
into their notebooks as if they were all the same. 

In class they are tired, as if I weren't. They 
moan about staying up to 3 A.M., as if I hadn't 
done the same to prepare for class. They com- 
plain about their papers, as if I weren't writing 
one for a journal. True, they are always polite 
and often alert. And they are bright enough . 
to see flaws in my arguments and offer insights 
I haven't seen. But their intelligence has a 
curious blind spot: they see me as little more 
than my role. 

Their ignorance is not for want of interest. 
Students dwell on professors' idiosyncrasies. 
They pass about anecdotes— things said or 
done, bits of personal information. If these 
reveal something about professors, they tell 
more about students. Most of the stories are 
tied to things said and done in class, as if this 
were the totality of the professor's life. Other 
stories try to place professors in some "distant" 

One student told me I was part of the '60s 
revival. She said students liked to come to my 
class because it was so much like the '60s— 
I had long hair, I said controversial things. 
Perhaps they were right— I represented my 
generation as well as anyone else— but I winced 
at the way the personal and social turmoil 
I'd known had been hollowed out to leave only 
a facade, a great heroic age. Anyone who knew 
me then, indeed anyone who knows me now, 

would be mystified at my being elected a 
representative of my generation. 

I am after all an anthropologist, someone 
who lives in our society by studying people 
outside of it, a stranger and friend to both 
worlds and even my own generation. But that 
student was right about what people saw in me. 
Last summer when I returned to Thailand for 
further field research, I cut my hair and shaved 
off my mustache. When I returned to Sewanee, 
I found many of my students didnt know me. 

When I was a student, was I any different? 
What did I know of my own professors? 
Thinking back, I can describe their appearance. 
I can match names with courses and classify 
them as hard or easy. I can even vaguely remem- 
ber a few great lectures. But even then I knew 
nothing about how they felt. If I sensed en- 
thusiasm or despair, it never surfaced into an 
understanding I could hold on to, it disappeared 
into pat categories and the flow of classes. 
I had done what my students have been doing 

As students our first lesson had been a 
cultural one. We had learned to separate what 
was taught from the person who taught it. 
When Mrs. Swansen taught me to spell, she 
didnt teach me Mrs. Swansen's spelling, she 
taught me spelling. 

As a teacher I know it isn't that simple. 
Indeed, this ingrained cultural lesson contra- 
dicts what I try to teach in anthropology. They 
think there is a finite world of disembodied 
facts; I know that the "facts" of anthropology 
are infinite and that they make sense only 
through a personal perspective. 

Could it be any other way? It is for the 
Thai. Once I thought about teaching in a Thai 
university. An old Thai monk encouraged me, 
saying the students would like me very much. 
They would listen eagerly, he told me, but of 
course they would not believe me. I was not a 
Thai professor, I wasn't part of their personal 

For the Thai, knowledge is ultimately 
personal. Just as you can't be bom without 
parents, you can't leam without teachers. A 
student may master a lesson, but, like a 
child inherits a surname, it will never be his 

Of course it could not be this way in our 
culture. We are not willing or even able to erase 
the abstract knowledge we've learned and see 
only the people who taught it to us. Our society 
has grown and prospered on the flow of im- 
personal information and it could hardly sustain 
the shock of having it all personalized. 

So this cultural genius has a darker side. 
It frees knowledge only to entrap us in imper- 
sonalism. Ultimately of course, like everyone 
in every culture, we must make our world 

Our culture, then, poses a challenge. It 
leaves us to personalize the impersonal, to 
clothe as human what we have first dehuman- 
ized. Places like Sewanee move in that direction, 
but even here students have to struggle to 
see professors as more than actors cast in a 
flat and narrow light. 



Craighill in 
New Post 

The Rev. Peyton Craighill has been 
elected to fill the newly created 
post of assistant dean for adminis- 
tration in the School of Theology. 

The creation of this post is the 
result of management consultations 
and the re-evaluation and redistribu- 
tion of administrative duties 
throughout the School of Theology. 
Mr. Craighill's administrative duties 
will include management of the 
M.Div. curriculum, financial aid, 
deployment questions for graduates, 
housing, coordination of continuing 
education, the catalogue, CPE 
(Clinical Pastoral Education) place- 
ments, and coordination of the 
secretarial staff. 

Mr. Craighill's faculty appoint- 
ment is as associate professor of 
mission. He has spent 21 years in 
ministry overseas and was for 17 
years on the faculty of the Taiwan 
Theological College. 

Mr. Craighill sees "mission as a 
process and ministry as a means 
by which that process is carried 
out." He hopes to enable students 
to begin to "understand that 
mission is not something 'over 
there' done to 'them' by 'us,' but 
as a natural outgrowth of the Great 
Commission set forth in the Acts 
of the Apostles." 

Peyton Craighill 

After his return to the U.S. 
from Taiwan in 1978, Mr. Craighill 
worked at the Office of World 
Mission at the Episcopal Church 
Center in New York City. He 
worked on the development of a 
Policy Handbook on World Mission. 
He plans to write a popularized 

book on the subject in the near 

Mr. Craighill attended Yale 
University and the Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary. He has an STM 
degree from General Seminary and 
a Ph.D. in liturgies from Princeton. 

He is married to the former 
Mary Roberts, and they have two 
children in elementary school. The 
Craighills will arrive in Sewanee 
in mid-June. 

for Clergy 

Seminary and College faculty mem- 
bers joined forces this spring to 
lead a well-attended clergy seminar 
entitled "Christian Believing." 

The Very Rev. Urban T.

Theology, was joined by the Rev. 
Robert D. Hughes, instructor of 
systematic theology, and Francis X. 
Hart, associate professor of physics 
in the College, in leading the 

In particular their subject 
dealt with the most effective ways 
for the Church to speak "where

religion prevail." 

The seminar was sponsored by 
the Alumni Association and the

El Dorado, Arkansas. Taking 
second and third were Forrest 
Weatherly, an Anniston, Alabama 
junior, and Bill Thrower, a junior 
from Charleston, South Carolina. 

Campbell and Thrower took 
the doubles title, while Weatherly 
and Mauricio Teran of Key Bis- 
cayne, Florida took second. 

Final team scores were the

College Sports 

Tigers Win 
the Big Bell 

Sewanee has captured the College 
Athletic Conference All-Sports 
Trophy for 1979-80, edging Rose- 
Hulman by five points on the final 
day of the conference spring cham- 
pionships May 10 at Centre College. 

Balance for the entire year was 
the key to overall victory. The 
Tigers picked up enough second 
and third places to go with a spring 
tennis champhionship and a first- 
place tie in football to capture the 
coveted bronze bell, symbol of 
CAC athletic supremacy. 

This is the first time Sewanee 
has had the bell since the Tigers 
shared the spotlight with Rose- 
Hulman in 1976. This is the first 
outright victory for Sewanee since 
the CAC has been a five-team 

In the final conference stand- 
ings, Centre College, Southwestern, 
and Principia follow in order after 
Sewanee and Rose-Hulman. 

In the spring championships, 
the Tigers won the tennis tourna- 
ment, placed second in golf, tied 
for third in baseball, and placed 
fourth in track. 



The men's tennis team, with out- 
standing depth and team spirit, 
blasted its way to the College Ath- 
letic Conference championship May 
10 at Centre College. 

Sewanee was followed by Prin- 
cipia, Centre, Rose-Hulman, and 

Neither Blane Brooks, a fresh- 
man from Chattanooga, nor Scott 
Jamison, a Columbia, Maryland 
sophomore, lost a match in winning 
the fourth and fifth singles titles. 
Brian Rogers of Gibson Island, 
Maryland won the number-six 
singles, despite a 3-1 mark, by win- 
ning the showdown match against 
the player who had tied him. 

Sewanee finished off its vic- 
tories when the doubles team of 
Steve Mallonee of Chattanooga and 
Jamison went undefeated and did 
not lose a set. 

Mallonee, the only senior on 
the starting squad, finished with a 
3-1 record in the number-one

singles, losing in his final match. 
Phil Dunklin of Pine Bluff, Arkan- 
sas also lost his final match in the 
number-two singles. Tim Johnson 
of Athens, Alabama won his final 
two matches to register a 2-2 record. 

B. H. Palmer, the assistant 
coach who led the men's team to 
Centre while Coach Dickie Ander- 
son was leading the women's team 
to regional matches, said the Tigers 
came together as a team for the 
conference matches. He said the 
tough regular-season schedule had 
much to do with that. 

Sewanee finished the season 
with a 12-7 record, playing mostly 
Division I and II teams. Five of the 
losses were to Division I teams. 


After losing its first two games in 
the conference tournament, the 
Tiger baseball squad fought back 
for back-to-back victories and a 
third-place tie. 

The losses were 7-1 to Rose- j 
Hulman and 8-4 to Centre, the 
joint tournament champs. Then in 
the third game, Tim Tenhet, a 
freshman from Clarksdale, Missis- 
sippi, slugged a three-run home 
run, and Gentry Barden and Jim 
Fleming teamed on the mound to 
lead the Tigers over Southwestern 

Barden, a freshman from Mill- 
bum, New Jersey, got the victory. 
Then Fleming, a sophomore from 
Greenwich, Connecticut, went the 
distance to win the final 3-2 victory 
over Principia. 

The leading hitter overall for 

the tournament was Kevin Holland 
of Nashville, who collected seven 
hits in 11 times at bat. Mallory 
Nimocks of Forrest City, Arkansas 
batted an even .500 in 12 times 
at bat. 

John Hill, a senior from Nash- 
ville, slugged a home run in his 
last time at bat for Sewanee in the 
narrow victory over Principia. 

Coach Sam Betz said the Tigers 
were playing good ball on reaching 
the tournament and could easily 
have beaten Centre. They finished 
the season with an 8-18-1 record, 
the best mark in several years, and 
will have several returning players. 


Kevin Reed of Wichita, Kansas shot 
a 36-hole 151 for the runner-up 
spot in the conference golf tourna- 
ment and led Sewanee to a second- 
place finish. 

Centre College took the team 
championship, and Centre's top 
golfer sank an eight-foot putt on 
the final hole for the individual 
title. Rose-Hulman, Southwestern, 
and Principia placed in order after 

The individual Sewanee golfers 
and their scores for the CAC were 
David Aucamp of Hollywood, 
Florida, 158; Wayne Davis of 
Tuscaloosa, Alabama, 162; Kevin

Turner of Birmingham, each 163; 
and Jimmy White of Union City,

Women's Tennis 

Jackie Scott, a St. Petersburg, 

Florida sophomore, led the Sewa- 

nee women's tennis team to a 6-6 
record against mostly Division I 
and II teams this spring. 

Many years ago the residents of a certain village made ready for 
a great feast of celebration. So that the occasion might be 
marked with buoyant spirits, a huge cask was constructed. Each 
villager was to bring a bottle of wine to pour into the cask. 

"If I fill my bottle with water," thought one villager, 
"and pour it with the others into the barrel, it will not be 

But at last, when the people were assembled and the 
wine cask was tapped, only water flowed forth. All the people 
had had the same thought: "My contribution will not be 

As you can imagine, this is a fable with more than 
passing meaning for the University's Million Dollar Program. As 
we reach the end of this year's drive, the message is clear: your 
gift is needed, your gift is vital. 


Coach Dickie Anderson called 
her one of the best Division III 
players around, but, partly because 
of sickness and partly because of 
a bad draw, Jackie did not place 
in the Region II tournament. 

The Tigers did place second in 
the state this year. The number-two 
doubles team of Minna Dennis and 
Elizabeth Brailsford was partly 
responsible. They lost only two 
matches all season. 

A pair of freshmen, Susan 
Chenault and Jane Tillman, are 
expected to form a solid nucleus 
for next season.

ball camp for players and coaches 
August 19-22. 

A staff of former U.S. team 
members and outstanding collegians 
will once again conduct the camp 
under the auspices of S & K Volley- 
ball Camps. 

The campers will be beginning 
and advanced players. They will be 
divided into groups according to 
ability and age, and each group will 
work under its own staff coach.

Alumni Golf 
Society Plans 

If you are a regular on the links, set 
your sights now for a golfing week- 
end being planned for next spring 
on the Mountain. 

The history of the project is 
this: For the past two years the 
"Sewanee Golfing Society," in the 
form of alumni from Birmingham 
and varsity golfers at Sewanee, have 
met in competition for the vicar's 
baffy. The friendly match for the 
baffy, which was the idea of Warren 
Belser, C'50, has for two years 
been played in Birmingham and 
won by the alumni 

But this spring Warren called 
to say that too many of his Birming- 
ham comrades had pulled up tame 
and could not make the scheduled 
trip to Sewanee. 

Foursome matches were sched- 
uled for the morning, and after 
lunch four-ball and singles matches 
were planned. Then a most import- 
ant "aftermatch review of play" 
was to be held on the terrace of the 
Sewanee Inn. 

Far from daunted, Belser has 
rescheduled the third vicar's baffy 
match for next spring and wants 
to involve alumni far and wide. 
Details, says Belser, will be an- 
nounced later. 


Alumni Affairs 

Club Topic 
for Alumni 

About 40 alumni attended the 
spring Alumni Council meeting 
April 18-19. 

The gathering included both a 
dinner and a morning "shirt-sleeve" 
session, which concentrated on 
Sewanee Clubs. 

Louis Rice, C'50, president of 
the Associated Alumni, presided 
at the dinner and the work session, 
which were both held at the Se- 
wanee Inn. 

John M. Webb, who is retiring 
as dean of the College, gave the 
dinner address at the Sewanee Inn 
where alumni and guests filled the 
main dining room. Dean Webb 
fascinated his audience with a re- 
view of the changes, particularly 
the physical changes, in Sewanee 
over the past 30 years. 

The Morgan Hall Trophy, award- 
ed annually to the leading class 
in percentage of alumni giving, 
was presented by Morgan Hall 
himself to Quintard Joyner, the 
class agent for 1920. Mr. Joyner 
was the guiding force in getting 
15 of his 17 classmates to con- 
tribute financially to Sewanee. The 
class gave a total of $17,153 in 

The Saturday morning session, 
also at the Inn, included short 
presentations by about ten alumni 
vice-presidents and staff members. 
The fast-moving program was 
spattered with humor (complete 
with the standard rubber chicken 
hauled out by Allen Wallace, C'54) 
and some solid suggestions about 
improving clubs. 

Louis Rice spoke about the 
participation of alumni in meeting 
a variety of goals in alumni job 
placement, admissions, and fund- 

Jack Stephenson of Atlanta, 
alumni vice-president for regions, 
discussed the numerous things 
Sewanee Club officers can do to 
build strong clubs. Payne Breazeale, 
Academy liaison to the alumni 
office, spoke about the value of 
bringing able and enthusiastic Acad- 
emy alumni into the clubs. 

Allen Wallace, vice-president 
for classes, and Lawrence Gibson, 
director of resources for the 
development office, spoke about 

getting active class agents and 
about the University's use of metro- 
politan area campaigns. Albert 
Gooch, admissions director, spoke 
about the valuable and indispens- 
able aid of alumni to the admissions 

Louis Rice and Dorothea Wolf, 
an associate in the placement 
office, spoke about gathering alumni 
assistance with placement of gradu- 
ates. Phil Whitaker, vice-president 
for bequests, spoke along with 
Herman West about the methods of 
achieving support in the form of 
deferred gifts to Sewanee. 

Latham Davis, public relations 
director, spoke about ways alumni 
can use his office to build interest 
in the clubs and how the alumni 
can help Sewanee be more visible. 

Beeler Brush, alumni director, 
reviewed some of the remarks 
made previously, bringing out some 
details about the organization and 
function of a good Sewanee Club. 
The meeting was adjourned after 
a brief talk by Vice-Chancellor 
Robert M. Ayres. 

Give Views 

"The Trip" (which the Vice- 
Chancellor jokingly compared to 
the football team of 1899) was a 
way for the new alumni director, 
Beeler Brush, to visit as many 
alumni as possible throughout the 
United States to familiarize himself 
with those people in the various 
regions who would be his contacts 
for the Sewanee Clubs. 

The purpose of his travels was 
twofold: First, to encourage con- 
tinued alumni support, and second, 
to find out firsthand what the 
University needed to do to help 
its alumni. On the 21-day trip, 
Beeler visited 26 cities and spoke 
to over 100 alumni and at one 
diocesan convention. 

The following excerpts from 
his contact reports give a general 
overview of the alumni "psyche" 
which is both enlightening and 
encouraging. It is not always posi- 
tive, but its negative side is con- 
structive and informative. And no 
matter how it is viewed, there is, 
as Brush says, "little doubt as to 
whether or not our alumni care 
about this University. They care 
a great deal."

active role. This should relieve 
Boyd of some of the responsibility. 
Also I felt they should compare 
what had been done in the past 
with some of the suggestions and 
see what could be adapted. By 
doing this, they should come up 
with a more structured organiza- 
tion with more involvement and 
less work for everyone involved."

Set your sights on Homecoming 
1980, October 3-5. 

Reunions for several classes, 
principally the classes of 1930 
and 1955, will be held. But special 
plans are still being made for a 
gala celebration of all the classes 
in the decade of the '50s. 

Clara Shumate is being invited

Joyner Given 
Hall Trophy 

It would be difficult to imagine a 
harder working class agent than 
Quintard Joyner, C*20, who has 
won, along with his classmates, the 
1980 Morgan Hall Cup. 

Mr. Joyner would be the first 
to remind us that he has the time 
and the place to do the work from 
his retirement home in Sewanee. 
But he has achieved some notable 
success in uniting his class. 

The Hall Trophy is awarded 
each year to the College class with 
the highest percentage of giving. 
For the past fiscal year, 1 5 of the 
17 members of the class of 1920 
gave to Sewanee. The class con- 
tributed $17,153. 

In second place was the class 
of 1906, which has no class agent. 
Tied for third place were the classes 
of 1944, with Willard B. Waggoner 
serving as agent, and 1921, under 
the leadership of Thomas E. Har- 

Tied for fifth were the classes 
of 1947, led by James G. Cate, 
and 1949, led by John P. Guerry. 

Quintard Joyner, C'20 t left, accepts the Hall Cup for class leadership 
on behalf of his class from O. Morgan Hall, C'39, T'46. The trophy 
was presented at the Alumni Council meeting in April.

Robert C. Wilson, M'08, perhaps Sewanee's oldest alumnus, has lived the 
equivalent of two or three normal lives in terms of both years and 

When he entered the University medical school in 1907, he had 
already been practicing pharmacy in Georgia for ten years. He became 
something of a sensation at Sewanee, where he taught chemistry, served 
as a sort of advisor to his professors, and, as a sidelight, set a record 
in the 100-yard-dash. 

He was at Sewanee when B. Lawton Wiggins was vice-chancellor, 
near the peak of activity for many of the graduate programs. J. S. Cain 
was dean of the medical school. Mr. Wilson had classes under Dr. Reynold 
Kirby-Smith and had a room in the home of the widow of General 
Edmund Kirby-Smith. 

He continues to make his home near the University of Georgia campus 
where he was dean of pharmacy for 34 years, and he continues to take 
walks almost daily through his tree-shaded neighborhood. Next fall he 
will be 102 years old. 

Dean Wilson was bom in Sparta, Georgia in 1878, only ten years 
after classes began to be held at Sewanee. After high school he worked 
on the family farm, until hard times led him to work in a general store and 
then to full time work in a drug store. 

Following ten years of pharmacy practice, he became an instructor 
in 1907 in the fledgling pharmacy school at the University of Georgia. In 
1915, having received his pharmacy degree from Sewanee and studied 
medicine at the University of Michigan, he became Georgia's second 
dean of pharmacy. 

The Georgia school experienced amazing growth under his leadership. 
He introduced the use of an entrance examination to help improve 
standards, and through his guidance, the school adopted in 1928 the 
four -year program leading to the bachelor of science degree. 

His efforts in professional organizations and the state legislature 
led to significantly improved standards in the practice of pharmacy in 

He was elected president of the American Association of Colleges 
of Pharmacy in 1936 and chairman of the House of Delegates of the 
American Pharmaceutical Association in 1937. In 1940 he was vice- 
president of the U. S. Pharmacopoeial Convention. 

Even after retiring as dean in 1949 at the age of 70, he remained 
active in his profession, teaching at Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Michigan. 
His book, Drugs and Pharmacy in the Life of Georgia, was published 
in 1959. 

Dean Wilson entered the medical school at Sewanee soon after 
joining the faculty of Georgia not because of any professional require- 
ment but because he felt he needed a degree to teach and because 
he could take classes at Sewanee during the summers. He had, in fact, 
been told by the University of Georgia chancellor to forget about 
the idea of having a degree, that his experience was all he needed to teach. 

Dean Wilson was at Sewanee before most Sewanee alumni, living 
and dead, were born, but he can recall some stories about the Mountain 
as if they had happened yesterday. Sitting in the parlor of his 
comfortable Athens home, he spoke about acquaintances at the Univer- 
sity whom most of us know only through history books and the archives. 

He recalled his first trip to Sewanee, stopping at Cowan to catch 
the Mountain Goat, the only practical means of transportation at the 
time. The medical school was in Thompson Hall (Old Chemical and 
Philosophical Hall), and the dissecting lab was upstairs, many years, 
of course, before fire converted Thompson into a one-story building. 

"And where did you get a body to dissect?" asked his wife, who 
sat on the sofa beside him. 

"From the cemetery," he answered. "I went out to the cemetery 
one night and got a skeleton to dissect." 

Each student had a cadaver, and each of the cadavers kept on 
Thompson's second floor had a nickname. 

There were 40 students in the medical school, Dean Wilson recalled, 
all of whom rather blended with the general student population in 
chapel, fraternities, and athletics. 

He is especially fond of memories of people he met his two summers 
on the Mountain. 

"A granddaughter of General Kirby-Smith introduced me to all the 
mountain trails," he said. 

There were three Kirby-Smith boys who played football for Sewanee

in those years, and Dean Wilson said that "as long as one of them wai 
playing, Sewanee had a championship team and won over Vanderbi 

He also fondly recalls Dr. Reynold Kirby-Smith as a tall, nice-lool 
personable fellow. 

Dean Wilson's knowledge of pharmacy must have become well ta 
very rapidly around Thompson Hall. He recalls that when he asked H 
Kirby-Smith about taking his pharmacology class, the doctor said) 
"You come sit in my class, and if I make a mistake,! want you to col 
to my house afterward, and we'll talk about it." 

Professor Cameron Piggott learned that Dean Wilson had studiej 
chemistry at Georgia and soon had him teaching a class. 

But one of his favorite stories is about his final examination. i 

"I needed to leave e^arly, and I asked Dr. Cain if he would give mt! 
exam. He told me to coine to his house one night and we would take; 
care of it. _ f 

"Well, I went to his house, and we talked and talked. Finally I saij 
'Maybe we had better get to the exam.' 'I'm not going to give you an 
exam,' he said. 'You know as much pharmacy, as I do.' " I 

Soon afterward the -Pharmaceutical Association of Tennessee ms 
meeting at Sewanee, and Dean Wilson recalls that Vice-Chancellor' 
Wiggins asked him to take the Tennessee pharmacy licensing examinati 
Dean Wilson protested t(iat he did not intend to practice in Tennessee, 
but when the vice-chancellor said he had good reasons to ask and invft 
Dean Wilson to attend the association banquet afterward, he agreed. 

On the night of the banquet, Vice-Chancellor Wiggins, with test 
results in hand, had an ahnouncement: "Until today Vanderbilt has ha 
the distinction of having the graduate who scored the highest on the si 
examination. As of today, Sewanee has that honor." 

The new pharmacy building at Georgia was named after Dean Wils 
in 1978 after the Board of Regents of the University System of Georg 
waived its policy against naming buildings for living persons. Dean 
Wilson's pharmacy gown and hood, which he won at Sewanee, is p» 
of the permanent display in that building. 

But his diploma (Pharmaciae Graduati), printed entirely in Latin < 
inscribed with names like B. Lawton Wiggins, J. S. Cain, and A. H. NJ 
still hangs with pride in his home.

John R. Alexander, A'63, an associate editor of 
the Daily News in Greensboro, North Carolina, 
is one of fine national finalists for the Pulitzer 
Prize in editorial writing for 1980. John's 
selection along with the Pulitzer nomination 
of the Daily News for local reporting arose from 
the murder of civil rights workers in Greensboro 
several months ago and the continued con- 
frontation of the Ku Klux Klan, the Commu- 
nist Workers Party, and Nazi Party members 
in that city. John's editorials addressed the 
issues of how a traditionally tolerant community 
like Greensboro could adjust to those events 
and protect the public safety without discarding 
the First Amendment. John said by phone from 
the Daily News that he was taken completely 
by surprise by his Pulitzer nomination. The 
honor follows within a year, however, his being 
awarded the coveted Walker Stone Award from 
the Scripps-Howard Foundation.

here may never be a time in the 
[e of the University of the South 
hen the level of alumni support 
B more riding on it. 

Recent statistics reveal that the 
ercentage of Sewanee alumni 
anors does not stack up very well 
hen compared with several other 
ighly regarded institutions. This 
imparison places Sewanee at a 
sadvantage in seeking large gifts 
ora foundations, corporations, 
id individuals, because in the 
aluation process they want to 
iow how well a school's own 
mily supports the school. Sewa- 
e has not been able to give them 
ery good answer to that question. 

In response to the perceived 
ed to augment Sewanee's alumni 
ring program, local campaigns in 
ur centers of Sewanee popula- 
>ns— Jacksonville, Atlanta, Bir- 
ingham, and New Orleans— have 
«n launched in recent weeks. 

More familiarly known as Met- 
ipoiitan Area Campaigns, these 
cal drives feature the classic 
ilunteer organizations, headed by 
cal chairmen. Team captains 
e enlisted, and each captain in 
m enlists five or more alumni 
ilunteers to work as solicitors on 
s team. Following the kickoff 
eeting where they are armed with 
mpaign tools and information, 
cli volunteer solicits a number 
fellow alumni for their pledges. 

Emphasis is on three-year 
sdges of $100 a year and payment 
the first year's installment by 
ne 30, the end of Sewanee's 
cal year. 

In four cities 170 alumni 
lunteers are engaged in making 
ntact with over 800 alumni 
ospects on behalf of Sewanee. 
iriy reports from Birmingham 
dicate a dramatic rise in percent- 
e of alumni giving in that city, 
d the increased tempo of solicita- 
ins in the other cities promises 

bring equally good results 
fore June 30. 

The commendable work of all 
ilunteers in Metropolitan Area 
"npaigns contributes significantly 

the overall goal of increased 
Rentage of alumni donors at the 
ty time when maximum alumni 
PPort must be realized.

More than a half-million dollars, 
most of it restricted for endow- 
ment, has come to the University 
through bequests from 12 persons 
since the beginning of this fiscal 

The most recent is a $75,000 
payment on a bequest of Gen. 
L. Kemper Williams, C'08, which 
will total $500,000 when com- 
pleted. Gifts totaling $475,000 
have been received by the Uni- 
versity from this estate. 

A total of $300,000 of this 
bequest was restricted to the 
purchase of books for duPont 
Library. Five trustees administer 
the Kemper and Leila Williams 
Foundation for the two causes 
specified by Gen. Williams— the 
Episcopal Church and the Univer- 
sity of the South. 

Other bequests, not previously 
published, have come from the 
estates of Nancy Murphy of Bartow, 
Florida; Louis LeMay of Dallas, 
Texas; and Mr. and Mrs. E. G. 
Nation of Orlando, Florida. 

The two largest benefactors 
in the University's history have 
been Mrs. Alfred I. duPont, who 
gave approximately $7 million 
during her lifetime, and the Ford 
Foundation, which has given 
approximately $3 million.

Broad Support Lifts Sewanee Past Goal 

We had much to be thankful for at 
the conclusion of the fiscal year on 
June 30. As a result of the commit- 
ment and generous support of the 
University's constituents, the 
Million Dollar Program exceeded 
its goal for the sixth consecutive 
year. It is almost impossible to 
overemphasize the significance of 
this success, and it is our desire that 
all of you share in the feeling of 
acco mplishment. 

In surpassing its goal of unre- 
stricted gifts and bequests, the Uni- 
versity is able to maintain that 
basic financial strength it so des- 
perately needs. As a result of this 
success, bolder steps are now 
possible. For the year ending June 
30, unrestricted contributions made 
to Sewanee totaled $1,388,375, 



1974-75 $ 704,049 

1975-76 1,016,030 

1976-77 1,199,217 

1977-78 1,408,530 

1978-79 1,015,589 

1979-80 1,224,428

thus exceeding our goal of 

The momentum established 
early in the fiscal year carried us 
well into the spring. Yet, as June 30 
approached, our goal seemed by no 
means certain. The good friends 
of Sewanee— and by this I mean 
alumni, parents, loyal church 
people, and others with great love 
for this place— rose to the occasion, 
as they had throughout the year 
and many years before. 

This kind of devotion to the 
University must grow continually 
more intense and broader in this 
new decade if Sewanee is to remain 
financially strong. 

The six-year record indicates 
the initial momentum: 


$ 857,959 

In addition to the unrestricted 
gifts, restricted gifts and bequests 
for the year amounted to 
$1,431,893. The grand total of 
restricted and unrestricted giving 
was $2,820,268. 

I renew the thanks of the Uni- 
versity to the outstanding volunteer 
leadership among regents, trustees, 
alumni, parents, and other friends 
of the Universiy. 

I recall that last year, as before, 
we acknowledged in particular the 
support of the members of the 
Chancellor's Society (those persons 
making unrestricted gifts of at least 
$10,000 in a single year). Our mem- 
bership in this society at that time 
was nineteen. For 1979-80, the 
membership has grown to twenty- 
five, an impressive increase of 32 

This growth indicates that there 
are constituents of Sewanee who 
are coming to recognize the value 
their commitment can have to the 
University and their capacity for 
expressing that commitment. With- 
out that kind of support, a univer- 
sity like Sewanee cannot effectively 
meet its needs in these years of 
financial instability and uncertainty . 
We owe a debt of gratitude to these 
Chancellor's Society members, but 
I also should point out that we 
achieved our goal this year without 
the very large quarter-million or 
half-million dollar gifts which have 
bolstered the Million Dollar Pro- 
gram in past years. 

During the past year, the num- 
ber of benefactors increased by 
more than 500— to 4,401. The num- 







ber of alumni making gifts to Sewa- 
nee increased in each of the three 
divisions— from 2,205 to 2,654, a 
very healthy 20 percent increase. 
This kind of increase in the number 
of persons supporting Sewanee 
should give us all renewed faith 
that there are enough people who 
believe in what the University is 
doing that we should not slacken 
our efforts to make it as strong as 

This decade has not been kind 
to private colleges. During the time 
that the University of the South has 
maintained a good fiscal posture 
upon a strong financial basis, other 
schools have not been as fortunate. 
One hundred and forty -one private 
colleges failed to survive the 1970's. 
In addition to those colleges that 
closed their doors, the merging of 
private schools into larger state- 
supported systems is not uncom- 
mon. To maintain the indepen- 
dence and strength of the Univer- • 
sity of the South, we must appeal 
increasingly to our alumni and 
friends and, with their assistance, 
expand our base of support. 

We can look forward to a new 
year with renewed enthusiasm, 
knowing there are many others as 
deeply committed as we are to the 
future of the University. 

For your enduring concern for 
Sewanee, for your continuing com- 
mitment, and for your generous 
support, may I, once again, on 
behalf of the faculty, students, 
and administration, give you hearty 

\0tw i\ w^jy^fi

Vice-President for Development 


Joins Staff 

The University has employed a full- 
time professional counselor in 
answer to a long-existing need 
among the students. 

He is Richard D. Chapman, 
chairman until recently of the 
department of counseling services 
at the State University of New 
York at Morrisville. 

Mr. Chapman will help relieve 
some of the very large demand for 
counseling which has been placed, 
to a great extent, on the chaplain's 
office. The administration has for 
some time recognized the need for 
a counseling service in addition to 
the chaplaincy, but the move was 
delayed until the financial con- 
dition of the University made it 

Mr. Chapman will provide more 
professional counseling, primarily 
to students of the College and 
School of Theology, and will 
develop referral contacts. The Se- 
wanee Academy uses another coun- 
selor on a part-time basis. 

The new counselor will also 
instruct student proctors in ways to 
detect problems among their fellow 
students, and he will assist others 
on campus, such as the deans, who 
are drawn into counseling by the 
nature of their jobs. In addition to 
the counseling and testing work, he 
will teach part time in the psychol- 
ogy department. 

Mr. Chapman received a bache- 
lor's degree in government from 
Hamilton College in Clinton, New 
York in 1969 and completed his 
master's degree work in counseling 
psychology at Colgate University.

He is completing work on his Ph.D. 
at the Center for the Study of 
Higher Education at the University 
of Virginia. 

He said he has been interested 
in a position in student affairs at 
a small college or university. He 
turned down other offers to come 
to Sewanee. 

The College 
Is Bulging 

The College of Arts and Sciences 
will be full again this fall, with 
323 freshmen entering from 30 
states and two foreign countries. 
The average of College Board 
scores is up by about 20 points 
from last year. 

The largest number of stu- 
dents, 19 percent, comes from 
Tennessee, with Florida replacing 
Alabama .as the state with the 
second largest group of students. 
Georgia is third, followed "by 
Texas and Alabama. There are 
189 men and 134 women. One- 
third of the crass were "early 
decision" entrants— they decided 
on Sewanee as their first choice 
a year ago. 

One reason for the full house 
is that more students returned from 
last year than were expected. Albert 
Gooch, director of admissions, 
attributed this in part to an extra 
effort by the deans to keep stu- 
dents, including setting up an 
advisory program with faculty who 
are particularly good with freshmen. 
Dormitory upperclassmen also 
looked after freshmen better this 
past year, and "attrition here has 
never been bad compared to other 
schools," he said. 

Another reason for the climb in 
applications— the third best year in 
Mr. Gooch's ten years in the 
position— was that last year applica- 
tions had fallen off and as a result 
the admissions office worked harder 
this year. "We set foot in every 
state east of the Mississippi," said 
Mr. Gooch, "except Maine and 
West Virginia and maybe Michigan, 
and visited half a dozen western 

He said the university "doesn't 
have to accept anybody just to fill 
up," and still accepts about 50 to 
60 percent of applicants. 

Of seven applicants from Girls' 
Preparatory School in Chattanooga, 
seven were accepted and seven are 
enrolled. Baylor School, also in 
Chattanooga, sent the largest per- 
centage of its graduates to the Uni- 
versity of Tennessee and the second 
largest to Sewanee. There are six 

students from Hockaday School in 
Dallas, six from Jacksonville Epis- 
copal High School, five from Moun- 
tain Brook High School in Birming- 
ham, and four from Heathwood Hall 
in Columbia, South Carolina. 

Of the three physics faculty 
at Hampden-Sydney College, two 
have children attending Sewanee 
this year. From Oxford, Mississippi, 
Sewanee got three new students 
including the daughter of the dean 
of the college of arts and sciences. 
The Charlotte (North Carolina) 
Latin School headmaster sent his 
son to Sewanee, and the son of an 
Ohio high school guidance counselor 
is a member of the class. "We also 
have our share of valedictorians 
and class presidents," said Gooch. 


A Sewanee summer doesn't begin 
to simmer down until just before 
the football team returns for 
fall practice in mid-August. 

The Summer Music Center 
wowed residents and visitors with 
another string of dazzling concerts 
and guest artists in its five-week 
season. Tune in for the silver anni- 
versary next year! Also under the 
SSMC umbrella was the Chattanooga 
Boys' Choir work week and the 
week-long String Camp for younger 
instrumentalists, both on the 
Academy campus. 

The Summer Seminar brought 
back many "old faithfuls" as well 
as some new faces for a mix of 
deep discussions, camaraderie and 
outdoor relaxation. "It's a great 
group, but then they always are," 
was the reaction of a returning 
Seminar fan. Lectures on history, 
literary criticism, politics, anthro- 
pology and Indian arrowheads 
were lively and entertaining as well 
as informative. 

A running camp sponsored by 
the Nashville YMCA and Athletic 
Attic was held at the University 
and attended by about 30 dedica- 
ted runners from as far away as 
Indiana. They spent part of their 
vacations running together, learning 
about physical fitness and nutrition, 
and rubbing elbows with Olympians 
Ed Leddy and Dave Wottle. 

Right after commencement St. 
Mary's Convent and Retreat Center 
was the scene of a four-day Confer- 
ence on World Missions co-sponsor- 
ed by the University and the Epis- 
copal Church Missionary Community. 
Speakers included the vice-chan- 
cellor and the dean and assistant 
dean of the School of Theology. 

The summer smorgasbord of 
events included the annual Tennes- 
see convention of the teachers' 
sorority, Delta Kappa Gamma, 
two camp sessions of the National 
Cheerleaders Association, a work- 
shop of the National Association 
of Independent Schools, and 
advanced classes of the Jean Spear 
Ballet School.

uled to preach at Evensong in All 
Saints' Chapel October 5. 

Canon Berry will be on the 
Mountain October 14-16 to meet 
with the entire Community of the 
Cross of Nails in Sewanee, and he 
is expected to meet with a number 
of groups of students. 

Mr. Joseph will be visiting 
Sewanee during election week, No- 
vember 5-9. He will be preaching 
and meeting with faculty and stu- 
dents as part of a program of the

More Summer 

The College Summer School had a 
healthy rise in enrollment this 
year— up almost 50 percent to 79 

Because of the increase, 
thoughts that the summer school 
might have to be closed have been 
set aside, at least for a while. 

The director, Frederick Croom, 
associate professor of mathematics, 
placed emphasis on recruiting pros- 
pective regular-term students and 
others wishing to get ahead or catch

A Dean 

for All 


In early August W. Brown Patterson began 
moving into the College dean's office in lower 
Walsh Hall. Except for the inevitable hauling 
and shuffling of boxes of books, the change was 
quiet and dispassionate. Dean Patterson, himself 
a Sewanee alumnus, is well steeped in the 
wherefores of the liberal arts campus. With his 
background as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, an 
ordained Episopal minister, and a history pro- 
fessor at Davidson College, it is as if he had been 
groomed for the job. 

He himself commented: "One reason I am 
happy to be at Sewanee is it gives me a chance 
to use all my background and training." 

Dean Patterson replaces John M. Webb, who 
became dean of the College his last year before 
retirement, and Stephen E. Puckette, who ended 
his ten years as dean last year and spent a year 
of sabbatical leave teaching in the Ivory Coast. 
This past year Dean Patterson has been 
doing research under a National Endowment 
for the Humanities Fellowship at the Newberry 
Library in Chicago. He had been a member of 
the faculty at Davidson since 1963 and had been 
a full professor since 1976. In addition to being 
an alumnus, Patterson was a Sewanee trustee 
from 1968 to 1971. 

For a time his education seemed to be lead- 
ing him toward the parish ministry. After 
receiving bachelor's degrees at the University of 
the South and Oxford and a master's degree at 
Harvard, he received a divinity degree from the 
Episcopal Theological School in Cambridge, 
Massachusetts. He was ordained and served as 
an associate minister in Massachusetts but went 
on to earn a Ph.D. from Harvard. 

"The Ph.D. is primarily a teaching degree, 
and I could have used it in seminary or college," 
he said. "Eventually, I decided college teaching 
was what I wanted for a career. 

"Basically I like undergraduate programs 
because they are not professional. The atmo- 
sphere of inquiry , the unbiased and unprejudiced 
investigation of the world I find most congenial. 
"The liberal arts college provides one of the 
few environments in which students can wrestle 
with the most fundamental problems of life. 
That is really education in my book." 

While Sewanee has hardly suffered in its 
defense of the liberal arts, Dean Patterson is 
aware of the urgings, even among alumni, to in- 
crease the number of professional courses. 

"We are seeing a demand on the part of stu- 
dents and parents that higher education, which 
is so expensive, have a tangible benefit. There 
are ways of getting at that problem. Having 
alumni come back to talk about their experi- 
ences, having persons to counsel students about 
career plans, allowing students to get experience 
outside the classroom are things we can do and 
are doing better than in the past. 

"But I would not want to relate a college 
curriculum to any particular set of career 
choices," he said. "For one thing, the world is 
changing so fast. A curriculum that develops 
particular skills may become out of date very 

Patterson said Sewanee is giving emphasis 
to those courses that go to the heart of know- 
ledge in fundamental areas. The argument for 
a basic curriculum is as good for subjects like 
English and history as for the sciences. 

"The ability to communicate, to deal with 
evidence, and to construct an argument is 
valuable in many professions. 

"We are assuming our students can go out 
and get practical experience and additional 
training if they wish. Not all college students 
are able to do that, but I believe our students 
are those who will eventually be able to take 
leadership positions." 

Dean Patterson has been struck by the 
similarities between Sewanee and Davidson. 
He said he would like to see closer relations 
between the two schools. 

He was closely involved in a number of 
changes at Davidson, both in the college com- 
munity and in the curriculum. 

"I wrote the plan for the conversion of 
Davidson to coeducation, and saw it through 
to some happy results," he said. "Some of 
the curriculum revision is not so happy. There 
have been problems with the quarter system. 

"There was a reduction in the faculty 
teaching load at Davidson from 12 to 9 hours. 
From what I have seen, I think this might be 
justified at Sewanee." 

Dean Patterson was involved in the success- 
ful development of a humanities course at 
Davidson, combining history, literature, and 
religion in a two-year course. Team teaching is 
used. Students have the choice of taking the 
humanities course or a set of separate required 

courses. He said such a plan might also be con- 
sidered for Sewanee. 

Of particular concern to Dean Patterson and 
other faculty members is the demise of the 
traditional course requirements at many colleges 
and universities. 

"There has been a tendency," he said, "to 
let the curriculum disintegrate into all sorts of 
little parts, with no attempt made to determine 
which subjects are more basic than others. In 
some schools there are no requirements outside 
a student's major. Students have no common 
educational experience in those institutions. I 
am glad to see a movement back to requiring 
some study of the fundamental subjects and an 
attempt to make them a part of the experience 
of each student." 

In coming to Sewanee, Dean Patterson has 
set some broad priorities. 

"I have a real concern that education at 
selective institutions continue to be rigorous 
and that Sewanee keep its standards high, especi- 
ally at a time when educational standards seem 
to be faltering. I want our students, when they 
go on to graduate schools and into professions, 
to demonstrate that they have gotten the best 
education anywhere. 

"I have a concern that the Christian faith be 
an attractive option at Sewanee. We should be 
challenging our students with the implications of 
Christianity, and we should counsel them in 
the fundamental problems of life, for which the 
Christian faith has some answers. This should be 
one of the particularly valuable aspects of educa- 
tion at Sewanee. 

"I am anxious that the faculty maintain 
their scholarly skills and continue to investigate 
the problems they began to investigate as under- 
graduates and graduate students. This work 
should be made public in a way that is appropri- 
ate, in the form of papers, addresses to con- 
ferences, articles, or books— anything to show 
the world that this place is a vital and productive 
intellectual community." 

Dean Patterson also noted the value of 
the students being able to meet faculty members 
on an informal basis. 

"I really count my intellectual awakening 
from the time I came to the Mountain. I did not 
know my talents until I began to meet and talk 
with faculty members here and to respond to 
their teaching and example." 


Is "Solid" 

The Academy opened with 192 stu- 
dents this fall. There were almost 
twice as many inquiries as last 
year and 30 percent more appli- 

Taking over as admissions direc- 
tor is Anne Turlington, parent of 
two Academy alumni and for eight 
years principal of the Sewanee 
Public School. David Snyder, pre- 
vious admissions director, is attend- 
ing seminary this fail. 

Snyder said prospective students 
(and their parents) are interested in 
the fact that the Academy is a small 
school where they can get personal 
attention. "Many students are 
coming from large public high 
schools where they were falling 
through the cracks," he said. Here 
students can talk to the headmaster 
or academic dean— in the office or 
in the hall— or even go camping 
with the headmaster and be 
stagehands with the academic dean. 
Both admissions officers con- 
sider the Academy's church connec- 
tion an important asset, though 
church influence is subtle rather 
than obvious. They said that the 
ones who come to Sewanee for its 
Christian environment are also 
those who are looking for "an 
education, not just books and 
tests." About half the students are 

Additional assets are the Acad- 
emy's geographic location, outdoors 
influence, and the opportunity to 
take courses in the College. 

Living Abroad 

After studying three years of 
French at Sewanee Academy, 17- 
year-old Alicia Wendling wanted to 
go to France. She applied for and 
was selected to participate in the 
Experiment in International Living 
program this past summer. 

After a two-day orientation, 
the group of over one hundred stu- 
dents flew to Brussels. They travel- 
ed by bus to Paris for a three-day 
stay and lastly, they each went to 
live with a French family. The 
"home stay" is the heart of the 

Alicia spent three weeks in 
Normandy living with a French 
family that had four children. Early 
homesickness receded in the face of 
sightseeing (the Bayeux tapestry, 
Mont-Saint-Michel and a disco- 
theque) and gastronomy (French 
pastries, cheese and chocolate). 

Leigh Burton, A'81, of Nashville, gets help from her family moving in 
for the school year. 

The best part, according to 
Alicia, was a two-week bike and 
camping trip through Burgundy. 

Now a senior, Alicia will share 
her experiences at an assembly for 
Academy students this fall so that 
others who might be interested in 
the program may become informed. 

New Faculty 

The Academy has several new 
faculty and staff members this year, 
including a new admissions director 
and a guidance counselor. 

Anne A. Turlington, for eight 
years principal of Sewanee Public 
School, has replaced David Snyder 
as the admissions director. Mr. 
Snyder has entered the Southern 
Baptist Theological Seminary in 
Louisville, Kentucky. 

Nancy V. Burns, a certified 
school psychologist with experience 
as a psychological services worker 
for the Nashville public schools, 
will be doing counseling with stu- 
dents. She holds degrees from 
Michigan University, Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, Peabody College, 
and the University of Tennessee at 

Beverly B. Davis, a senior in 
the School of Theology, is teaching 
ethics. She has degrees from Georgia 
State and Indiana Universities. 

Peter R. Kay has joined the 
math department. He is a graduate 
of Kenyon College and has attend- 
ed the National Outdoor Leader- 
ship School and the Hurricane 
Island Outward Bound School in 

Mary McCutcheon, a graduate 
of Hobart College, who came to 
Sewanee two years ago as a novice 
in the Community of St. Mary, 
is teaching chemistry. 

Mary P. Priestley, C'72, a 
Sewanee graduate in forestry, is 
teaching biology. 

William D. Tugwell, C'67, is 
teaching English. He did graduate 
work at the University of North 
Carolina at Greensboro and has 
several years of teaching experience. 

A Merger 
with duPont 

The Academy library has this fall 
been brought into the University 
Library System, and a full-time 
Academy librarian has been named. 

Richard N. Shaw, for three 
years librarian at Eastside High 
School in Taylors, South Caro- 
lina, is the new librarian. He has 
bachelor's and master's degrees 
respectively from Youngstown 
State University and the University 
of North Carolina. He has also 
taught history and been an assistant 
varsity basketball coach. 

Tom Watson, the University 
librarian, who is now responsible 
for the Academy library operation, 
said the change provides several 

All technical services will be 
provided by the staff at duPont 
Library, while previously the Acad- 
emy librarian was entirely respon- 
sible for ordering and processing 

The previous librarian, Joanne 
Russell, who has moved from Sewa- 
nee, had been spending more than 
half of her time counseling, teach- 
ing a class, and working with Acad- 
emy organizations. 

Free of those responsibilities 
and clerical jobs in the library, Mr. 
Shaw will be able to give more time 
to providing library services and 
instruction to students. 

Mr. Watson also said the Acad- 
emy library budget will be in- 
creased and a new emphasis will be 
given to building the Academy 

State's Best 

Armond Ghazarian, center forward 
for the Academy soccer team, was 
named the number one player in 
the state last year by the Tennessee 
Soccer Coaches' Association. 

Ghazarian scored 16 goals in his 
senior season, during Dixie Con- 
ference competition. The Iranian 
native is a student this year at 
Indiana Tech University. 

Fall Sports 

Sewanee Academy will host the 
State Soccer Tournament beginning 
October 31, but the Tigers have 
plenty of work ahead before defend- 
ing their state title. 

Only five varsity players have 
returned from the championship 
team. Coach Phil White may be 
wondering where his new champions 
will come from, but more than 
once he has molded an inexperienced 
group into a competitive squad. 

Though the front line is gone, 
the defense has some veterans. 
They include Steve Poole of Hous- 
ton, Texas; Forrest Weatherly of 
Anniston, Alabama; Rich Dower of 
Palm Beach, Florida; Roy Flannagan 
of Carbondale, Illinois, and Tom 
Cross of Sewanee. 

A strong group of returnees give a 
promising look to the volleyball 
team under Coach Donna Wallace. 
The squad had a winning record 
last year. 

New runners are needed for the 
cross country team, but the girls 
will have a boost from Johanna 
Granville, who was seventh in last 
year's regional meet. 


Fall Lectures 
on the Parish 

The School of Theology will cele- 
brate St. Luke's Day and hold the 
DuBose Lectures October 14-15 
in Sewanee. 

The lectures are the occasion 
for the annual meeting of seminary 
alumni. The St. Luke's Alumni 
Association will hold a breakfast 
and business meeting October 15. 

The DuBose lecturer this year 
will be the Rev. James F. Hopewell, 
professor of religion and the church 
at Candler School of Theology, 
Emory University. 

Ordained to the priesthood in 
1954, the Rev. Dr. Hopewell has 
been teaching most of his career 
and has published extensively on 
the subject of theological education 
and how it relates to the church 
in the United States and abroad. He 
has also served churches in Africa 
and America and is currently associ- 
ated with the Church of the 
Epiphany in Atlanta. 

His three lectures— one on the 
evening of October 14 and two 
others on October 15— will be con- 
cerned with the "moods, hopes, 
outlooks, drama, and dislikes" of 
the parish. The title will be "Congre- 
gations that Stories Tell." 

New Students 

The School of Theology has 30 
new students this year, and total 
enrollment is 74. 

The student body comes from 
a variety of backgrounds. Some 
are recently out of college and 
others are preparing for the ministry 
after years in another career. 

They have come to Sewanee 
from jobs in the armed forces, real 
estate, mental health, performing 
arts, and natural resources, to name 
but a few. Among the new students 
are four women. Two of the enter- 
ing juniors have Ph.D.'s. 

In addition there are four new 
students from foreign countries- 
priests from Kenya, Uganda, Tan- 
zania, and Costa Rica who have 
been ordained but have come to 
the United States for further train- 
ing as future leaders in their home 
churches. The international students 
are supported here by grants in 
part from the School of Theology 
and in part from the national 
Episcopal Church, individual dio- 
ceses, or parishes.

DuBose Lecturer 

First EFM 

One of the first groups of graduates 
in Education for Ministry, still 
known to many as Theological Edu- 
cation by Extension, had its "com- 
mencement exercises" in June in 
New Orleans. 

The Very Rev. Urban T. 
Holmes, dean of the seminary, 
attended and personally awarded 
certificates. ] 

This group was symbolic of 
several groups around the country 
completing the initial four-year 
cycle of EFM. | 

The School of Theology began 
the program in 1975 in response to 
a "rising laity," which was demand- 
ing more in theological training— in 
Biblical study and lay ministry 
development— than the Church was 
then providing. So successful and 
popular has the program become 
that enrollment has grown to 
3,700 in 63 dioceses and several 
foreign countries. 

"In my opinion, EFM is the 
most significant lay renewal move- 
ment in the Episcopal Church 
today," said Dean Holmes. "The 
program has been successful in 
many ways in drawing together 
people's experiences with God, 
Christian tradition, and ministry 
in everyday life." 

The Rev. Charles Winters, the 
author and adapter of the pro- 
gram materials, has referred to its 
development as "bottling" the 
seminary curriculum. In small 
group meetings or seminars, how- 
ever, discussions are aimed at re- 
lating the lives of the students to 
the materials— at developing their 
own ministries. 

The study material tells the 
story of the people of God as a 
continuous narrative from the 
earliest times to the present, weav- 
ing into that story the theological, 
liturgical, and ethical lessons of 
Christianity. It is an intensive 
study of the Judeo- Christian tra- 
dition and a continuing reflection 
upon learning to live into the 
Kingdom of God. A group maybe 
sponsored by a church, a diocese, 
or individuals. 

This year the Rev. John de Beer 
has joined the program as staff 
trainer. He had been a contract 
trainer for EFM last year while 
living in Chicago. He is a priest of 
the Church of the Province of 
South Africa. 

De Beer joins the Rev. William 
H. Hethcock, director of field 
education and manager of training, 
and his assistant, Barbara Stuart. 
Flower Ross, who designed and 
led the mentor training program,

manager of administration and 
publications, has assumed the new 
post of executive director of con-

Forty students participated in the 
Joint Doctor of Ministry program 
this summer in Sewanee and at 
Vanderbilt University. 

The five-week Sewanee section 
consisted of courses in "The Old 
Testament Sage: A Model for 
Ministry," taught by Arthur Zan- 
noni; "The History, Development 
and Contemporary Relevance of 
the Early Church," by the Rev. 
Donald Armentrout; "The Daily 
Office," by the Rev. Marion Hatch- 
ett; "Spiritual Direction and Ana- 
lytical Psychology," by the Very 
Rev. Urban T. Holmes; and "Christ- 
ology : Model of Christian Experi- 
ence," by the Rev. Charles Winters. 

The students participating in 
the program are interested in con- 
tinuing their education and im- 
proving their professional skills. 

The Conference on World Missions co-sponsored by the University in June 
lent an international flavor to the Mountain.

Colle g e Sports 

Rick Jones, head soccer coach 
and last year's assistant basket- 
ball coach, is now head coach 
of the basketball Tigers. 

He was named to replace 
Jerry Waters, who resigned 
September 1 after two years 
at Sewanee to become head 
coach at the University of 
South Carolina at Spartanburg. 

in Soccer 

The optimism in Sewanee's soccer 
ranks this year has probably never 
been higher. The program had no- 
where to go but up last year when 
Rick Jones took over, and up is 
exactly where he is taking it. 

Eighteen lettermen, including 
eight starters and three all-confer- 
ence players, are back from last 
season when the Tigers finished 
with a 3-1 record in the CAC 
tournament and a second-place in 
the conference standings. 

The overall record was 4-10-2, 
but Coach Jones points out that 
Sewanee was only a handful of 
goals away from a winning season, 
scoring 34 goals to 37 for the oppo- 
sition. In only four home matches, 
the Tigers won two and tied two. 
They have eight home games this 

Coach Jones will be looking for 
outstanding leadership from several 
skilled players. Shaun Gormley, a 
senior left wing and co-captain, 
scored 12 goals last year. He was 
named to the Tennessee Intercol- 
legiate Soccer Association team and 
all-conference team. 

Robert Clemmer, a senior full- 
back and all-conference performer, 
is another captain along with Gary 
Rowcliffe, a senior goalie. Richard 
Garbee, a sophomore center half- 
back, was outstanding enough as a 
freshman to make the CAC squad 
and is expected to be a major 
boost to the team this year. 

The schedule includes five 
home matches in October, begin- 
ning with the annual alumni game 
at 9 a.m. October 4. 

Top Athlete 

Ricky Dale Harper, C'80, a four- 
year football letterman from Cross- 
ville, Alabama, is the winner of 
the Barron-Cravens Cup as the 
outstanding athlete of the year 
for 1979-80. 

Harper is the second leading 
ground gainer in Sewanee history, 

. Robert Clemmer beats a Bryan player to the ball with support from team- 
mates Jed Carter, left, and Jim Caldwell, right. 

rushing for 1,810 yards, and he 
gained 1,948 yards in total offenser- 
running, passing, receiving and kick 
and punt returning. For the past 
two years, he was named to the 
All College Athletic Conference 
Football Team. 

The Barron-Cravens Cup was 
established last year as a revival of 
the old Porter Cup, which was 
awarded to outstanding athletes 
at Sewanee from 1919 to 1939. It 
was revived by two former Porter 
Cup winners, William M. Cravens, 
A'25, C'29, of Winchester and 
Charles H. Barron, C'31, of Colum- 
bia, South Carolina, 

Grid Year 

The afternoon humidity settled like 
a wool blanket over players and 
coaches. They swayed uncomfort- 
ably in the afternoon sun of the 
practice field. The hardiest among 
them had trouble keeping to the 
task at hand— getting ready for 
Sewanee's earliest opening date in 
several years. Even the Mountain 
was hot this year. 

Coach Horace Moore fussed and 
fumed: "We look terrible." The 
usually optimistic assistants, Yogi 
Anderson and Sam Betz, worried 
excessively over pages of plays and 

"111 let you know how things 
are going about mid-November," 

said Moore. 

The outlook this year is actual- 
ly not too glum. The Tigers wel- 
comed 64 prospects, including 28 
lettermen and seven transfers. 

The experience is in the defense, 
which Coach Moore said is the real 
strength of the team. Tackle Gary 
Roth well, all-conference last year, 
heads a smaller but, nevertheless, 
strong defense. Returning with him 
are 225-pound Larry Dickerson, a 
senior from Orlando, Florida; 
Steve Blount, another Orlando 
senior, and Trey Bryant of Sewanee. 

In the backfield are veterans 
Hunter Keller, a Birmingham junior; 
Erling Riis of Mobile, Alabama, and 
Greg Worsowicz, a junior from 
Jacksonville, Florida. 

The center of the offensive line 
got diplomas last May, and by his 
graduation, Ricky Dale Harper left 
a big hole in the backfield. But 
talent is still to be found. 

D. J. Reina of Tampa, Florida 
is back from a fine season at run- 
ning back. Jeff Morris, a sophomore 
from Cincinnati, was looking good 
at fullback. 

The Tigers went through an 
ambitious off-season weight pro- 
gram that is expected to pay divi- 
dends. The fanfare, however, was 
given to the new passing attack. 
Dewey Warren, the former Uni- 
versity of Tennessee record breaker 
with the pass, helped install the 
new system, and Coach Moore 
said the Tigers will be going to the 
air more often. 

Mark Lawrence has been trans- 
planted firmly in the defensive 
backfield; so at quarterback are 
Robert Holland, a Nashville junior, 
who was coming on strong last 
year, and Tim Tenhet, a sophomore 
from Clarksdale, Mississippi. Sure 
to get plenty of playing time at 
either quarterback or halfback is 
David Gilbert, who was all-city in 
Chattanooga last year. 

The pass receiving corps, led by 
tight end Mallory Nimocks, is 
skilled and experienced. 

After September engagements 
against Illinois College, Hampden- 
Sydney, and Millsaps, the Tigers 
will host Centre October 4 for 
homecoming, and Southwestern 
October 11. They then travel to 
Principia October 18 and Wash- 
ington and Lee October 25 and 
return home November 1 against 
Rose-Hulman. The season will end 
November 8 at St. Leo College in 


Cross country for both men and 
women promises to hit a new peak 
this season because of some out- 
standing returnees. 

Matt Ligon, a senior from 
Marietta, Georgia; Mike Ball, a 
Fairfax, Virginia junior, and John 
Beeland, a Rome, Georgia sopho- 
more, led the Tigers to a third 
place in the regionals last year and

Alumni Affairs 


Homecoming October 3-5 will have 
an unusually crowded schedule as 
the Alumni Association plans a gala 
welcome for returning alumni. 

The weekend will begin with 
dinner Friday night at the Bishop's 
Common and a dance in the old 
gym of Juhan Gymnasium. The 
plans are to make it like the old 
German Club dances. 

On Saturday the class agents 
will meet at 9 a.m. The alumni- 
varsity soccer game will begin on 
Clark Field at the same time. 

The Andrew Lytle bust will be 
dedicated at duPont Library at 
10:30. Several fraternities will also 
have parties under way in the late 

The annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciated Alumni will begin at 11 ajn. 
and will be followed about 12:30 
by the alumni luncheon at the 
Bishop's Common. 

The football game with Centre 
College will begin at 2:30 p.m. 
The late afternoon and evening will 
be devoted to class reunion parties. 

All alumni should register upon 
their arrival. Registration desks will 
be set up at the Holiday Inn in 
Monteagle and in the alumni office 
in Thompson Hall (the old student 
union). Alumni whose classes are 
not having reunions are asked to 
attend a party of a neighboring 

Clara Shoemate Orlln, HA*66 

Special Day 
for Clara 

"Miss Clara" will be back for home- 

, She will be a guest of the Asso- 
ciate Alumni and will be honored 
at halftime of the Sewanee-Centre 
football game. The classes from 
1940 to 1950 will honor her with 
a special reception on the back 
lawn of Rebel's Rest. 

"Miss Clara," as she is known to 
thousands of Sewanee men, is now 
Mrs. James Orlin, and she makes 
her home in Santa Monica, Cali- 
fornia. Only alumni from the 1930s 
remember Clara when she was 
really a Miss, when she operated a 
small diner on Highway 41 below 

The first of her successively 
larger restaurants was called "Clara's 
Dine and Dance." It had six stools 
and two tables and was held to- 
gether by the determination of this 
pretty little mountain girl. 

Later Clara's restaurant in 
Monteagle had a special place for 
students called the "Sewanee 
Room." Alumni from the '30s and 
'40s remember that, and there are 
scores of stories about Clara and 
her "boys" from the college. Even 
with the natural antagonism among 
students, truck drivers, and miners 
frequenting Clara's, there was no 
real trouble. As one observer noted: 
"There was something about Clara 
that made men act like gentlemen." 

She also owned and operated 
Claramont Castle near Sewanee and 
for several years was business mana- 
ger of DuBose Conference Center. 

Miss Clara's official service to 
the University began in 1957 when 
she became the first manager of 
the Sewanee Inn. The University 
did not even decide to build the inn 
until Clara agreed to run it. There 
she remained until 1965. (Her first 
husband, Thomas B. Shoemate, 
died in 1964.) 

In 1965 she was made an hono- 
rary alumna by the "boys" she had 
seen through their Sewanee years. 
Soon afterward she moved to 
Atlanta to be near her son, Thomas 
E. Shoemate, A'56. She made a 
gift to the University of Claramont 
Castle, which was valued at $158,218. 

It has been some time since 
she was in Sewanee, partly because 
of poor health. But Miss Clara has 
always remembered her friends 
from the Mountain. They certainly 
remember her. 

Fellow class agents seem to be giving the "third degree" to Alex McPher- 
son, C'55, during an agents' seminar July 18-19 in Sewanee. From left

New Life in 
Old Clubs 

A revitalization meeting of the Se- 
wanee Club of Washington June 21 
reaffirmed the active interest of 
Sewanee alumni from the nation's 
capital, Virginia, and Maryland. 
Fifteen alumni gathered at the 
home of Bascom D. Talley , C'64, to 
select a slate of officers and com- 

Those present included Alumni 
Director Beeler Brush, Carol Gas- 
kins, Beverly Grail, Bill and 
Knowles Harper, Ruth Heimburg, 
Melanie Kersey, Clendon Lee, Mar- 
garet Mankin, Kimberly Matthews, 
Harry McPherson, Eugene Morris, 
Dit and Susan Talley, Bill Thrower, 
and Lucy Young. 

Plans were laid for at least four 
social events; a University recruit- 
ing drive, including the establish- 
ment of systematic bestowal of the 
Sewanee Award for Excellence; 
career and employment assistance 
for students and alumni, with 
special attention to be paid to 
internship opportunities in Washing- 
ton; and an effort to increase the 
amount of giving to the University 
from the Washington area. 

Preliminary discussions center- 
ed on the possibility of reforming 
the present Sewanee Club of Wash- 
ington into a coalition of Virginia 
(Richmond), Maryland (Baltimore), 
and Washington Clubs. 

The club's annual dinner was 
held the same evening in the Con- 
ference Center of the Carnegie 
Endowment for International Peace. 
Fifty alumni came from all over 
the geographic region. Dit Talley, 
club president for 1979-80, and his 
wife, Susan, prepared a marvelous 
dinner with the assistance of a 
host of alumni, resulting in a very 
special, truly Sewanee party. 

The new officers elected at the 
dinner meeting are: Kimberly 
Matthews, C'77, president; William 
R. Harper, C'78, vice-president; 
Clendon Lee, C'72, finance chair- 
man; Beverly Grail, C'79, career 
chairman; Martin Eugene Morris, 
C'49, social events chairman; 
Knowles Bonin Harper, C'79, mem- 
bership chairman; Melanie Kersey, 
C'79, and Margaret Mankin, C'78, 
welcoming chairmen; Lucy Young, 
C'76, news chairman, and Bascom 
D. Talley, C'64, fundraising chair- 

Harry McPherson, C'49, form- 
er special legal counsel to President 
Lyndon Johnson, was the guest 
speaker. He entertained everyone 
with his wise and humorous remarks 
based on his long political career 
in Washington. He eloquently re- 
minded young and old alumni of

the values we carry from a liberal 
arts education. 

The Washington Club also had 
a party in honor of retired Dean 
John Webb and recent graduates 
August 15 at the home of the Hon- 
orable Eugene Morris, C'49, and his 
wife, Gwen, in Great Falls, Virginia. 
Over 160 alumni accepted invita- 

A large contingent of Washing- 
ton-area alumni will also be travel- 
ing to the Washington & Lee game 
October 25. The annual dinner 
has already been scheduled for 
April 4 at the Touchdown Club in 

The Atlanta Club, in a strong bid to 
retain the Dobbins Trophy for an 
unprecedented third year in a row, 
hosted a nationwide Sewanee party, 
"The Humongous Event." 

Over 100 people from New 
York to New Orleans showed up at 
the Atlantic Steel Pavilion on 
June 14 for an afternoon and 
evening of bluegrass-country rock, 
barbecue, and beer. The party 
started at 5 p.m. and continued 
until well after midnight when the 
band finally refused to play any 
more. Previously the band had 
played one encore for free, been 
financially induced to play a 
second but declined a third be- 
cause as one band member put 
it, "Man, we're picked out. Tired. 
And just want to go home." 

The "Humongous Event" was 
the brain child of Montague L. 
(Cosmo) Boyd, C'74, the Atlanta 
Club president. It was hailed by 
some to be "the party of the year" 
and certainly rivaled the statewide 
party held in March in Columbia, 
South Carolina (the Drifters played 
that one). "Cosmo" was delighted 
with the party but pointed out 
that without the help of Louis 
Rice IH, C'73, the secretary of the 
club, Morgan Robertson, C'69, 
vice-president of the club, and 

many other volunteers the party 
would never have taken place. 

If you missed it, don't worry. 
You'll have another chance next 
year. Such a fun-filled occasion 
as the "Humongous Event" has to 
be repeated. 

The Sewanee Club of Central South 
Carolina played the Washington & 
Lee Club of Columbia in a Softball 
game May 18 and won by the score 
of 6-2. The victory evened the 
series at one game each. 

Winning pitcher, Oliver Craw- 
ford, C'73, also made the play of 
the day. At the top of the ninth 
inning with Sewanee ahead and in 
the field, Washington & Lee had 
men on first and third bases with 
no outs. A long fly ball was hit to 
left field, and Duvall Spruill, C'67, 
caught the ball for an out. The run- 
ner at third advanced toward home 
plate. Spruill relayed the ball to 
George Lafaye, C'63, who threw a 
lightning strike to Crawford. Craw- 
ford was covering the plate for 
some unknown reason. Neverthe- 
less, Crawford assumed a Johnny 
Bench-like position and there was a 
terrific collision at the plate! After 
the dust settled, Crawford arose 
with the ball in his possession and 
the out to his credit. This deflated 
the Washington & Lee attempt for 
a comeback and Crawford pitched 
out of the inning for the win. It 
should also be noted that, while all 
members of the team did well, 
Hugh "Brooks Robinson" McAngus, 
C'72, did an inspiring job at third 

On Friday evening, August 11, the 
groundwork was laid for the Se- 
wanee Club of Denver, Colorado. 
A meeting was held at the home of 
George Hopper, C'51. About 20 
people attended the "Formation 
Party." According to E. Ragland 
Dobbins, C'35, it was "quite an 
enthusiastic bunch. Each was ques- 


tioned as to whether or not they 
would be- willing to work and put 
time in for solicitation of students 
in this area, and all gave a definite 
answer of 'yes'." 

Caroline Hopper, C'81, a stu- 
dent trustee, was the main speaker. 
With the originator of the Dobbins 
Trophy (the award given to the 
most outstanding club) as a charter 
member, there is a very real possi- 
bility we will hear much more 
from the Denver Club. 

A group of Sewanee people met 
May 31 in Seattle, Washington's 
Sherwood Inn to discuss the pos- 
sibilities of forming the Sewanee 
Club of the Pacific Northwest. 

Robert C. (Bink) McBride, 
C'66, oversaw a work session which 
concluded with the unanimous vote 
to continue with the formation of 
the club. A goals session was sched- 
uled for the latter part of June 
at which priorities were to be set, 
officers were to be elected and 
committees were to be formed to 
implement the club's plans. 

Those in attendance heard 
from two students presently en- 
rolled in the College: Barbara 
Tennant and Mark Robinson, both 
of the class of 1981. Barbara and 
Mark discussed how things are 
now on the Mountain and answer- 
ed questions. 

Another meeting has been 
scheduled for the late fall. Some 
of the other people who braved 
the wrath of Mount Saint Helens 
to attend the meeting were Jim 
Varnell, C'65; Marshall J. Ellis, 
C'41, T'43; Richard Matthews, 
C'70; Peter W. Robinson, A'48; 
and Donald S. Brown, C'66. 

The Sewanee Club of Houston 
gathered its forces May 1 for its 
own brand of May Day celebration. 
Starting in the late afternoon, 
George's-on-Washington Restaurant 
served as a meeting point for after- 
work relaxation and conversation. 
Included in attendance were Bob 
Newson, Anne Walker Johnson and 
husband Chris, Palmer Kelly, Mike 
Fagan, Kathy Bemal, and Mr. and 
Mrs. John Todd. Also involved were 
Bev Laws, Bill Hopkins, Allan King, 
Charles Turner, and Maurice Benitez. 
George Ayres, Mark Lowes, Eugene 
Smith, Gene Mechling Hogwood, 
and Robert and Debbie Clark 
helped round out attendance along 
with officers of the club Boyd Park- 
er and wife Nancy, Steve Hogwood, 
and Jeanne Glenn. 

Major topics of conversation 
during the evening included Boyd 
Parker's recent return to the Moun- 
tain. While here, he participated in 
the alumni meeting and developed 
new plans for increasing Sewanee 
Club activity. The response to 
Boyd's suggestions was extremely 
positive and tentative plans for 
future informal meetings were set.

up at the meeting of the officers 
and board later this month. 

The group stayed together in 
full force for several hours before 
bearing off in different directions 
for dinner and further Sewanee- 
based conversation. 

Work is moving forward to build a 
strong Sewanee Club of Lexington 
(Central Kentucky). Many of the 
alumni have been active in recruit- 
ing. Three Sewanee Awards were 
presented last year, and there are 
plans to increase that to six this 
coming year. President Tim Strohl, 
C'67, has pointed out that Sewa- 
nee enjoys a fine reputation in that 
area, and local schools have his- 
torically sent some fine people to 
the Mountain. 

The club has an executive com- 
mittee consisting of John Milward, 
C'73; Tom Dupree, C'78; Buckner 

Hinkle, C'70, and Strohl. Their 
desire is to draw many others into 
active leadership roles in the club. 

Spring marked the beginning of a 
revitalization of the Mobile Sewanee 
Club. The following new officers 
were elected at the annual meeting: 
Joel T. Daves IV, president; Thom- 
as S. Rue, vice-president; John D. 
Peebles, treasurer. They have, with 
the recently-appointed executive 
board, begun to plan several activi- 
ties and projects designed to re- 
kindle alumni commitment to the 
University and to spark the interest 
of prospective students. 

Sewanee Club Awards for Ex- 
cellence were presented by repre- 
sentatives of the Mobile Club to 
high school juniors in the Mobile 

The club plans to take an even 
more active role in student recruit- 

ment this year. A bus trip to the 
Mountain is being scheduled for a 
fall football weekend. Many alumni 
are looking forward to the oppor- 
tunity to serve as tour guides for 
interested high school juniors and 
seniors from the Mobile area. The 
Associated Alumni, the University's 
admissions office, and the Mobile 
Club will make the trip possible. 

The Summer Party was held on 
July £6. Dean Douglas Paschall was 
the honored guest, and he greeted 
alumni and friends of the Univer- 
sity who gathered on Washington 
Square for an evening of hamburgers, 
beer, and camaraderie. Other so- 
cial events are on tap for the near 

The recent party gave the new 
executive board members, who also 
serve as chairmen of various com- 
mittees of the club, a chance to talk 

to alumni interested in taking a 
more active role in the workings of 
the Mobile group. The committees 
and their chairmen are: recruit- 
ment, Marcia McFadden; University 
liaison, Amy St. John; finance, 
Peter C. Sherman; entertainment, 
Melissa Egbert; membership, 
J. Brooks ChampUn. 

The Nashville Sewanee Club held 
its annual summer picnic August 21 
on the grounds of Belle Meade 
Mansion where box suppers were 

Among those gathered for the 
event were Phil Carpenter, Debbie 
Guthrie, Alex Buchanan, Pete 
Stringer, Tim Toler, Ann Bailey, 
Beth and Bill Koch, Allen Wallace, 
Elizabeth Durham, Debbie and 
Randall Dunn, and Dr. Joe Cush- 
man, Dr. Doug Paschall and Beeler

Joe B. Hall, C'51, right, talks with an old Sewanee teammate, the Rev. 
Robert N. Lockart, C'52, during the Southeastern Conference Basketball 
Tournament in Birmingham last March. 

There are plenty of jokes in show business about following a good act. 
And everyone is a bit wary about trying to follow a legend— be it in 
politics, business, or sports. A clear exception to the jinx is the emergence 
of JoeB. Hall, C'51. 

Hall, you remember, followed the inimitable Adolph Rupp as head 
coach of Kentucky basketball. While few people, least of all Joe Hall, will 
forget Rupp, fewer still can overlook the new coach. He has solved his 
identity problem by becoming something of a legend in his own right. 

Since Hall became head coach at Kentucky in 1973, the Wildcats 
have won outright or tied for the Southeastern Conference title four times 
and in 1978 won the national championship. Despite his relatively short 
tenure, Hall is already the second "winningest" coach in UK history. 
Nothing succeeds like winning. 

Hall's success, however, involves more than his style on the basketball 
court, more than his style with his players or recruits. Viewing him in 
the environs of Memorial Coliseum and the athletic offices, one is inclined 
to say of Coach Hall something like what he said about Rupp: "He would 
have been a success as an executive of a huge corporation." 

Hall leaves no doubt that Sewanee played a big part in cultivating his 
active life and business savvy. The education was enhanced by Lon 
Varnell, Hall's coach and "general manager" at Sewanee. 

Hall was a student at Kentucky and trying to play basketball behind 
Rupp's "Fabulous Five" in 1948 when he heard Varnell on a Louisville 
radio station saying he was in the area to recruit guards. What especially 
interested Hall was that a player could transfer and play immediately. 

He went to Rupp, who knew Varnell and could recommend Sewanee. 
By the start of the spring semester of 1949, Hall was on the Mountain. 

"Lon is like one of those guys you would read about in the Reader's 

Digest's Most Unforgettable Characters. . .,," said Coach Hall. "He was a 
promoter, a competitor; he was knowledgable about basketball and 
dedicated to coaching," 

Hall said Coach Varnell probably had the toughest coaching job in 
the country. The Sewanee schedule included teams in the Southeastern 

Hall lived in Varnell 's house in one of three upstairs rooms reserved 
for basketball players. Bob Logan and Vernon VVaddy roomed up there, he 
recalled, and Buck Caine was Hall's roommate the second year. 

Sewanee ran the "Kentucky offense," which Coach Varnell learned 
while he was Rupp's assistant; so the Sewanee Tigers used a fast break 
like the Wildcats to the north. Hall, who played two years on the Moun- 
tain, broke a single-game scoring record with 29 points and was team 

His life at Sewanee was by no means all basketball. Since Hall had to 
work to stay in school, he lined up about five jobs with Coach Varnell's 
calculated assistance. One job was a paper route, which was really 
Varnell's paper route, every afternoon and Sunday mornings. He also had 
a dry-cleaning agency in the dormitories. He sold popcorn from Varnell's 
popcorn machine in the theatre, and he sold apples. Once a week he 
bought a crate of apples from Mr. Hawkins at the Supply Store for $4 and 
left some in each dormitory with a change box. By selling the apples for 
10 cents each, Hall cleared $3.20 a week in his apple business. He collect- 
ed for the apples as he made the rounds on his dry-cleaning route. 

Despite this hectic schedule out of class, Coach Hall said the academics 
at Sewanee had the greatest impact on his life. 

"I had been more ball oriented than academics oriented," he said. 
"The smallness of the classes and the atmosphere had their effect. I 
really liked the professors." 

Not surprisingly, he had trouble finding time to study, and his advisor, 
Charles Harrison, agreed to help him set up a schedule. 

"He couldn't believe I was involved in so many activities," Coach Hall 
said, "but he did help me organize my free time into study time." 

He recalls the intensity of the classes and some great professors- 
Arthur Dugan in political science and Eugene Kayden in economics. 

The highlight of his basketball career at Sewanee was the summer 
tour of Europe and North Africa in 1951. 

"You remember the story of the 1899 football team. Well, we were 
the iron men of basketball," he said. "We played 56 games in 58 days 
and won 52 of them." 

When his basketball eligibility was over, Hall left Sewanee and later, 
in 1955, finished requirements for his B.A. degree. He began coaching the 
next year at Shepherdsville High School in Kentucky. He was football, 
basketball, and baseball coach for two years. His cage team won con- 
ference and district titles both years, though the school was not thought 
of as a powerhouse before, and finished eighth in the state one year. 
Next he was at Regis College in Denver, Colorado, moving from 
assistant to head basketball coach and athletic director. He was then head 
coach for a year at Central Missouri State College before becoming an 
assistant coach and head recruiter at Kentucky in 1965. 

He found that his friendship with Adolph Rupp and his knowledge 
of the Kentucky program were major factors in his success at UK. 

"When people compare me to Coach Rupp, I consider it a compliment 
even when it's negative," he said. 

Coach Hall does not seek publicity, but he stays active. His speaking 
tours carry him around the world. This month he is in Chile. Last year 
he was in Poland, Sweden, and England. 

He and his wife, Betty Sue, have a home in a wooded section of south 
Lexington about seven minutes from the UK campus. They have two 
married daughters, Judy, an accountant, and Kathy, a nurse, and a son, 
Steve, a junior at UK. 

Sewanee has received a B.S. degree in 
equestrian science from Salem College in 
West Virginia. In June she received her 
"H-A" rating from the U.S. Pony Club 
in trials held in Oklahoma City. Of 
equestrians from throughout the country 
who entered, only half passed the diffi- 
cult test, which is the "horse" part of the 
coveted "A" rating.

Kenan Grant 
To Sewanee 

The University of the South has 
been named the recipient of a 
$750,000 William R. Kenan Pro- 
fessorship and has chosen one of 
its own most distinguished profes- 
sors, Harry C. Yeatman, to be the 
first Kenan Professor at Sewanee. 

The announcement was made 
by Vice-Chancellor Robert M. 
Ayres, Jr. at the Founders' Day 
convocation on October 13. Mr. 
Ayres spoke of the great pleasure 
in sharing the news with the Uni- 
versity family. The grant is not only 
a significant addition to the perma- 
nent endowment but represents 
recognition of Sewanee's worth by 
a most prominent foundation. 

The trustees of the William R. 
Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust, in their 
recent report, stated that "the 
largest proportion of grants. . . has 
been designed to enhance the 
quality and effectiveness of teach- 
ing and the teacher-student rela- 
tionship at the undergraduate level 
through direct grants to privately 
supported, well-established univer- 
sities and colleges in the United 
States which are highly regarded 

Kenan Professorships have been 
created at such institutions as 
Amherst, Brown, Dartmouth, Duke, 
Harvard, and Stanford. Virtually all 
the endowed grants have ranged 
in size from $500,000 to $750,000. 

Mr. Ayres noted that Professor 
Yeatman meets particularly well 
the criteria for the Foundation's 
desire to support a scholar-teacher 
of distinction. 

William Rand Kenan, Jr., the 
man for whom the professorship 
is named, was concerned throughout 
his life with the advancement of 
education. Even though he became 
one of America's most prominent 
industrialists, he began his career 
as a country school teacher. 

In his will, which left most of 
his $100 million estate to endow 
the Kenan Trust, he wrote: "I 
have always believed firmly that a 
good education is the most cherish- 
ed gift an individual can receive, 
and it is my sincere hope that (the 
Kenan Trust) will result in a sub- 
stantial benefit to mankind." 

A native of Wilmington, North 
Carolina, Mr. Kenan earned a B.S.

Yeatman Is 
First Kenan 

The appointment of Harry Clay 
Yeatman as the University's first 
Kenan Professor was hardly a sur- 
prise to his colleagues and students. 
He is appreciated and loved by all 
for his attitude toward his calling— 
a teacher first and foremost. Yet 
over his thirty -year career at Sewa- 
nee, he has distinguished himself 
as a scientist far beyond the confines 
of his classroom. 

His work in both freshwater 
and marine biology has made him a 
world authority on copepods, the 
almost microscopic relatives of 
lobsters and shrimp and the indis- 
pensable inhabitants at the base 
of the food chain. A copepod spe- 

cies which he discovered and 
identified has been named for him. 

His students include more than 
the Sewanee undergraduates of his 
Woods Lab classes. Young scientists 
from as far away as Thailand, Fiji, 
Samoa, and Africa have written 
for his advice and consultation. 
Among them are Sewanee graduates 
who have realized an almost unex- 
pected value to science in the special 
knowledge of the personable pro- 

Professor Yeatman's published 
research has been receiving greater 
attention in recent years because of 
the discovery that copepods and 
their parasites may hold the key to 
the defeat of some of the dreaded, 
debilitating diseases of tropical 
countries. He has been called upon 
to identify copepods for the Re- 
search Unit on Vector Pathology 
of the World Health Organization. 

He has published many articles 
in publications that include the 

McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of 
Science and Technology, the Jour- 
nal of Parasitology, and the Journal 
of the Tennessee Academy of 
Sciences, He has authored a chapter 
in a famous reference work, Fresh- 
Water Biology by Ward and Whipple. 

Yet he once expressed his 
appreciation for the low-pressure 
atmosphere of Sewanee by saying, 
"A scientist or other scholar works 
best from inner drives and not from 
a 'publish or perjsh' whip." 

His other research, done from 
the joy of investigation and dis- 
covery, has involved such diverse 
topics as ornithology, mammalogy, 
herpetology, archeology, protozo- 
ology, and parasitology. He is a 
member of the scientific advisory 
committee of the Tennessee Field 
Office of the Nature Conservancy. 
He was an invited participant in a 
1960 scientific expedition, spon- 
sored by Woods Hole Oceanographic 
Institute, which covered much of 
the Atlantic Ocean. In 1972 he was 
tapped for honors in Outstanding 
Educators of America. 

Professor Yeatman is a native 
of Ash wood, Tennessee near Colum- 
bia. Leonidas Polk, a principal 
founder of the University, was his 
great-great-uncle . 

He received his A.B., M.A., and 
Ph.D. degrees in zoology at the 
University of North Carolina, where 
he also taught before coming to 
Sewanee. He is a member of Phi 
Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, Omicron 
Delta Kappa, and Blue Key honor 
societies and a Fellow of the Ameri- 
can Association for the Advance- 
ment of Science. He is a charter 
member of the Society of System- 
atic Zoology and of the Society of 
Limnology and Oceanography, and 
is a member of half a dozen other 
scientific societies. 

In awarding Sewanee the 
$750,000 grant, the Kenan trustees 
stated : "Of great importance is our 
wish to support and encourage a 
scholar-teacher whose enthusiasm 
for learning, commitment to teach- 
ing, and sincere personal interest 
in students will broaden the learning 
process and make an effective con- 
tribution to that college's under- 
graduate community." 

The Kenan Professorship is 
practically an ultimate recognition 
for so fine a professor as Harry C. 


Fire Siren 
Winds Down 

The Sewanee fire siren has been 
silenced. It has been replaced by 
modem technology in the form of 
belt "beepers" of the kind worn 
by doctors. The siren, while it 
will be still be tested each Saturday 
at noon, will no longer blare out 
informing the whole town of 
emergencies. Mid-day fire alarms 
will cause student firemen to 
scramble more quietly from classes. 
Midnight fires will no longer 
awaken scores of Sewanee resi- 
dents with the siren's alarming 
note, causing the police switch- 
board to be jammed with calls 
for information. 

Among many disadvantages to 
the old siren, no transmitting could 
be done by the police dispatcher 
for the three-minute duration of 
the blast. In addition, no informa- 
tion about the location and severity 
of the emergency could be given 
before firemen arrived at the sta- 
tion. With the new equipment, 
a voice message automatically fol- 
lows the beep; beepers can also be 
used to listen to the police/fire 
frequency by turning a switch. 

Other advantages of the new 
alarms— installed at a cost of 
around $7,000— they can be heard 
anywhere on campus (strange as it 
may seem, there were places the 
siren could not be heard); and 
they work even in power failures- 
there is a back-up encoder in the 
fire engine.

active in the 1920s the bells atop

Back then, the firefighters included

Sewanee's atmosphere and the 
prestige of the firemen.

The eighth annual Sewanee Mediae-

The colloquium will honor the 
life and work of Eugene Vinaver. 
Mrs. Vinaver, the wife of the late 
author and professor of French and 
Mediaeval literature, will be the 
guest of honor. 

The principal lecturers will be 
D. W. Robertson, Jr. of Princeton 
University and Walter Ullman of 
Trinity College, Cambridge. 

The colloquium will have the 
theme "Mediaeval Monarchy: Ideal 
and Reality" and is being directed by 
Edward King, professor of history. 

New Gallery 

A new art gallery for Sewanee will 
open in December at the old Uni- 
versity dairy, now the sculpture 
studio. Called "The Alternative 
Space at Sewanee," it will have 
shows of non-conventional forms of 

contemporary art, both paintings 
and sculpture as well as other forms. 
The first show will be paintings on 
unprimed canvas by Carolyn Gold- 
Smith of St. Andrews. Following 
will be a "Lucky 13" exhibition of 
work by thirteen selected students 
in all media. 

The gallery is the project of 
Marianne Exum, a College junior 
from Reidsville, North Carolina 
who is majoring in art history and 
psychology. She is on a work-study 
project under sculpture professor 
Ron Jones to turn the old refrigera- 
tor room of the building into a 
gallery, and her jobs have included 
painting the room and installing the 

Though the new gallery is loca- 
ted away from the main campus, it 
is on the way to Lake Cheston and 
is near the football and soccer fields. 
The art department hopes to make 
it a recognized stop for art lovers 
in the area. 

in April 

The second annual Sewanee Eco- 
nomics Symposium will be held 
April 2-4. 

The theme will be "Continuity 
Versus Change in Southern Eco- 
nomic Development: A Multidis- 
ciplinary Perspective." 

Marvin Goodstein, the sym- 
posium director, said: "Our over- 
all objective will be to examine the 
inter-relationships between eco- 
nomic development and the insti- 
tutional and ideological character- 
istics of the South." 

Among the speakers will be 
William Parker, a Yale University 
economic historian; William Havard, 
Jr., a political scientist at Vander- 
bilt University; Lewis Simpson, 
editor of Southern Review, and 
Patricia Beaver, director of the 
Center for Appalachian Studies. 

The public is invited, and Uni- 
versity alumni are especially wel- 
come. Further information may be 
obtained by writing Professor Good- 
stein in care of the University.

Third Floor 

Construction has begun on a 
$300,000-phase of finishing the 
third floor of the Jessie Ball duPont 
Library at the University, planned 
for library expansion when the 
building was built in 1965. 

The present construction will 
provide a new 3,300-square-foot 
University Archives, more than 
three times the size of the present 
Special Collections area currently 
housing both rare books and 

The new archives provides stor- 
age space adequate for ten to fifteen 
years' growth in the archives col- 
lection, along with an archivist's 
office and separate reading and 
exhibit room. The new archives 
also includes its own separate cool- 
ing, heating and dehumidifying 
system in order to maintain proper 
climate control required by archival 

The present Special Collections 
area on the second floor will be 
remodeled and given over entirely 
to the University's rare book collec- 

The construction was made 
possible by grants from the "Pew 
Memorial Trust, the Booth Ferris 
Foundation, and the U.S. Steel 

Librarian Tom Watson said he 
expects the archives and a section 
of new faculty carrels to be finished 

by January 1. He said the University 
is currently seeking a further grant 
of about $225,000, mainly to pur- 
chase 300 sections of stacks to 
accommodate the St. Luke's Li- 
brary, which will be moved from 
its present location in St. Luke's 
Hall. He said the shelves there 
cannot be moved because they are 
tiered stacks; that is, they are an 
integral part of the building and 
are "holding up the floors." 

"We hope to get the grant by 
January," said Watson, "so we 

can order and receive the shelving 
in time to move the books during 
the summer vacation."' He said 
the move would open up space for 
the theology library, currently 
about 70,000 volumes, to grow for 
the next fifty years, at the present 
rate of expansion. Provision is 
also being made in the project for 
easy expansion of the Archives 
when it outgrows its new space. 

"This will be the first time ever 
that we have been able to organize 

all the University Archives collection 
in one place," said Watson. A stair- 
way will connect the new Archives 
with the Rare Books Room. 

When the seminary library is 
moved, it will be merged with the 
duPont collection in the 100's and 
200's in the Dewey decimal classifi- 
cation. The St. Luke's coUection 
in the remaining subject areas will 
be merged with the appropriate 
portions of the present duPont

/ write to you concerning an article 
that appeared in the Sewanee News, 
the September edition. The article 
concerned the new dean, the Rev. 
W. Brown Patterson. 

In paragraph four, the Rev. Mr. 
Patterson is referred to as an "or- 
dained Episcopal Minister." The 
Episcopal Church, according to 
what it teaches, does not have 
ministers who are ordained as like 
our Protestant brethren. We do 
have lay ministers, those who are 
not ordained. But ordained people 
fall into three classes: Bishop, 
Priest, Deacon. It has been this way 
for the last 1,400 years. Mr. Patter- 
son is an ordained Episcopal priest 
according to the ordinal found on 
page 524 of the Book of Common 

It can be quite easy to confuse 
the terminology that exists among 
the various denominations. There 
is, though, a big theological differ- 
ence between a minister and a 
priest. Hence, I believe you should 
be aware of how use of the term is 
put into effect. 

Keep up the excellent work as 
editor of the paper.

New Slant 
on Careers 

The office of Career Services at 
Sewanee has undergone major 
changes in both personnel and 
operations during the last few 

Charles B. Roberts, as director 
of financial aid and career services, 
oversees the entire operation. 
Barbara F. Hall, appointed in July 
as assistant director of financial aid 
and career services, has responsi- 
bilities in the area of financial aid 
and has been charged with "direct 
operation. . . ." John Bratton also 
came into the office in July as the 
full-time career services associate, 
responsible for the day-to-day 
operations of career services. 

The office, with strong backing 
by the administration of the Uni- 
versity, is operating on the premise 
that as students at Sewanee increase 
their knowledge, wisdom and under- 
standing through a high quality 
liberal arts education, it is the duty 
of the University to afford them 
the opportunity of translating their 
intellectual attainments into mar- 
ketable knowledge and skills to 
take into the "working world." 

With this in mind, the office has 
already begun to implement chan- 
ges. All students— seniors and under- 
classmen—have been given the 
opportunity of registering with the 
office. Individual counseling on 
business and graduate school oppor- 
tunities has been increased. A 
career services column appears in 
each issue of the Purple informing 
students of current trends in busi- 
ness and graduate school admissions, 
recruiters who will be on campus 
and other pertinent information. 
Workshops on resume writing and 
interviewing skills have been sched- 
uled at regular intervals throughout 
the academic year. The career 
services library is being updated and 
expanded to better serve Sewanee 
students in their quests for the 
right employment or graduate 
school. Because the choice of a 
career does not "just happen," 
various career planning courses and 
workshops are being researched for 
possible implementation at Sewa- 
nee during the second semester. 

The establishment of a greater, 
more effective network of alumni, 
parents and friends who are willing 
to assist our students in their choice 
of a career is being sought. Initially, 
the office is seeking to establish 
an advisory board composed of stu- 
dents, faculty, alumni, parents and 

employers to serve as a staff resource 
for the most current job market 
and new opportunities deserving 
exploration. Also, by the summer 
of 1981, the staff would like to 
see a summer externship program 
instituted. Four hundred and 
seventy-one underclassmen have 
registered with the office expressing 
an interest in participating in such 
a program in a field of interest to

Purple Stays 
Keyed Up 

The Sewanee Purple has gone 
through its annual metamorphosis. 
It's now a bi-weekly rather than a 
weekly or monthly, published on 
newsprint rather than slick coated 
paper, and the staff seems to be 
larger. Purple people are everywhere. 

Yet has the Purple really 

The Purple staff, as if cultiva- 
ting a fever, slaves to the last mo- 
ment of the deadline. . . and be- 
yond. . . to the wee hours of the 
night and morning. 

Were you on the Purple staff? 
Do you remember it? 

Too harried and exhausted to 
worry about split infinitives or 
palm prints on photographs, the 
staff turns its attention to such 
things as malfunctions in the IBM 

machine (the current counterpart 
of the old hot type linotypes of the 
University Press). Mild profanity 
(though it is) is reserved for mis- 
placed headlines and jumbled 
galley proofs. 

Nevertheless, a new editor was 
found to sacrifice grades and 

Her name is Judy O'Brien. She

of essays on the national election, 
and an intriguing, in-depth feature 
on the Sewanee Review, so in depth 
that most of it had to be printed in 
eight-point rather than the usual 
ten-point type. 

Theolo gy 

on Mission 

The Rt., Rev. Stephen Neill, noted 
missionary and church historian, 
will be the guest speaker for the 
annual Samuel Marshall Beattie 
Lectures February 3-4 at the School 
of Theology. 

The former bishop of the 
Church of South India, which he 
helped establish, Bishop Neill cur- 
rently resides in Oxford, England. 

His topic will be "The Mission 
of the Church" in a series of lec- 
tures over two days. 

Bishop Neill began his career as 
a teacher in Germany, and later 
served as a missionary in India. He 
has since written several books 
about the history and theology of 
the Anglican Church. 

The chairman of the lectures 
committee is the Rev. Peter Igarashi, 
professor of New Testament 

Wider Appeal 
for TEE 

Bairnwick is expanding. 

No, the famous old stone Sewa- 
nee house-is not getting an addition, 
but the extension program (TEE), 
so closely associated with Bairn- 
wick, is getting one. 

The addition is Christian Aware- 
ness and is meant to complement 
the very successful Education for 
Ministry (EFM). Christian Aware- 
ness is an adult course in religious 
education rather than theological 
or seminary education, and is 
aimed at the lay person who may 
not be ready for the commitment 
required by EFM. 

David P. Killen, executive direc- 
tor of the Bairnwick Center, said 
Christian Awareness is meant to fall 
between the nurturing of faith on 
the one hand and theological 
analysis on the other. It is meant 
to arouse interest and make students 
aware of the implications of their 
Christian faith in their lives. 

"Often the college educated 
person tries to explain his Chris- 
tian faith on the basis of childhood 
religious education," Mr. Killen 
said. "This is the kind of person we 
want to reach with Christian Aware- 
ness. " 

The new course is a parish- 
based group program, and each , 

The audience begins to assemble in Grosvenor Lounge for one of the

group will have a "facilitator" who 
has at least two years of study

As with EFM, there are reading 
materials, which provide the back- 
ground for group sessions. The 
reading materials include an intro- 
ductory module and eight topical 
modules, each of which may be 
used independently and take about 
six weeks to complete. The cost is 

about $10 to $15 a module de-

Faculty Notes 

The Rev. John M. Gessell, professor 
of Christian ethics and editor of 
St. Luke's Journal, has been elected 
chairman of the National Executive 
Committee of the Episcopal Peace 
Fellowship. Also Professor Gessell 
spent part of the summer in Flor- 
ence, Italy as a supply minister at 
St. James' Church, the American 
church in Florence. 

The Very Rev. Urban T. Holmes, 
dean of the School of Theology, 
will be on sabbatical leave beginning 
January 1. During his leave he will 
be serving as Theologian in Resi- 
dence at Kanuga, the Episcopal 
retreat center in North Carolina. 
While at Kanuga he will be working 
with spirituality for the clergy. 
After leaving Kanuga he will spend 
the months of June and July teach- 
ing at Lincoln Theological College 
in Lincolnshire, England. 

The Rev. Dr. Donald Armentrout, 
professor of church history in the 
School of Theology, will be on 
sabbatical leave from January 1 
until June 1. He and his family will 
be away from Sewanee during that 
time. He will be working and re- 
searching baptism in American 
church history. Dr. Armentrout 
plans to use this study as the foun- 
dation for a volume on the subject. 


the Calendar 

"Less is more" according to Sewa- 
nee Academy innovations this year. 
Students will be spending less time 
in Sewanee by the calendar, though 
there will be the same number of 
academic days and credit hours. 

Thanksgiving vacation was elim- 
inated and Christmas and spring 
vacations were lengthened, and the 
Master-Students term, though cher- 
ished by many, is a thing of the past 
this year, a victim of heating bills 
and its own success— it took up too 
much extra time and energy to 

Headmaster Roderick Welles 
said the goals of the changes are to 
conserve energy, both human and 
material; to create a healthier 
balance among academic, non- 
academic, and leisure time activities; 
and to provide the most service for 
the educational dollar. 

The opening and closing dates 
of the school are approximately the 
same, but the actual time spent in 
Sewanee will be less by fifteen days. 
Classes will be held on nine Satur- 
days during the year. 

Mr. Welles said the abolition of 
the short Thanksgiving holiday 
will save parents travel costs and 
also save energy in a peak travel 
period. He also expects the lack of 
a break at that time to have a good 
effect on academic performance 
on the mid-year exams. The Christ- 
mas vacation will be nine days 
longer and the spring vacation 
will be longer by four days. 

He said that despite many 
virtues, the interim term was not 
universally understood or support- 
ed by the Academy's constituency. 
In addition some projects had extra 
costs that made them prohibitive 
for some students. 

Latest Merit 

Byron Rhoads Chitty, a four-year 
boarding student from Beaufort, 
South Carolina, is a semifinalist in 
the National Merit Scholarship 
Program and thus is the latest in a 
long line of Merit scholars from the 

He is one of 15,000 students 
competing for the 1981 Merit 
Scholarships— a group that consists 
of less than half of one percent of 
the nation's graduating seniors. 

Byron, whose favorite subject 
is English, is president of the Cum 
Laude Honor Society and received 
the M. F. Jackson Medal for schol- 
arship his junior year. He is a mem- 
ber of the varsity soccer team. 

Neale Parkinson, A'81, of Stone 
Mountain, Georgia pushes a mop in

The son of a retired Navy com- 
mander, Chitty has lived in such 
far-away places as Hawaii, Iceland, 
and California, as well as Washing- 
ton, D. C. His parents are Mr. and 
Mrs. Charles M. Chitty, Jr. of 

Byron's academic standing has 
allowed him to take courses in the 
College both last year and this year. 

Pitch In 

The Sewanee Academy is cleaning 
up its act. Students are pitching in 
with mopping, waxing, washing 
blackboards, and picking up litter 
on the campus in a "Self-Help" 
program that started this fall after 
three years of preparation. 

Headmaster Roderick Welles 
said that in the last fifteen years 
the school's maintenance and custo- 
dial staff was cut from twelve full- 
time people to five, while the school 
added two large buildings to its 
physical plant. In light of the 
well-known fact that finances are 
increasingly difficult for private 
educational institutions, the Acad- 
emy decided to bring in a large

pool of under-utilized labor— its 
faculty and students. Five minutes 
was cut from several between-class 
periods, and the school day started 
fifteen minutes earlier, gaining half 
an hour in the day for the cleanup 

Mr. Welles said the results have 
been not only an improved campus 
appearance, but increased pride and 
decreased littering on the part of 
the students. Now the professional 
staff can concentrate on the heavy 
work— students are not allowed to 
use dangerous machinery in their 
jobs. "The custodians had time to 
wash the windows in Cravens Hall 
for the first time since I've been 
here," said Welles. 

Coordinating the program with 
the maintenance department is 
physics instructor John Wendling, 
who has been named school engin- 
eer. Wendling and a representative 
of Southern Products Corporation, 
a distributor of custodial equip- 
ment, went through the school 
"inch by inch," doing each job 
themselves to see how long it took. 
They multiplied by one and a half 
to allow for lesser motivation on 
the students' part— though some 
teachers say their students arrive 
early and rush the job through in 
record time in order not to impinge 
on their leisure time. 

Each teacher is in charge of a 
cleaning crew. James R. Miller, 
history teacher, coordinates the 
work force. Equipment is laid but 
by the janitors, and students spend 
the twenty minutes at the end of 
classes for the day doing their 
appointed jobs, which are to be 
rotated among everyone. Only 
half the students are working in 
any given month. 

The cleanup jobs are treated as 
required appointments, with an 
absence treated as a disciplinary 
matter for the dean of students. 
Among other long-neglected jobs, 
the students assigned to Quintard 
Hall are getting rid of several years' 
accumulation of dirt in the rug— 
"when they first started sweeping, 
no one could stay on the floor— it 
was like a dust storm." 

Welles said the program is 
working "rather well," though he 
cited a few examples where im- 
provement is needed, such as assign- 
ing day students to parts of the 
campus they use instead of to

one of the fifty-two American

letter from her brother describing 
the dreary day-to-day existence 
for the hostages. 

Mrs. Darrell W. Stevens of Katy 
says she received the hand-printed 
letter last week from her brother. 
Royer, 48, is the son of Dorothy 
Royer of 2806 Plumb in West 
University Place. He was a teacher 
employed by the U.S. International 
Communication Agency in the 
Iranian-American Society Cultural 
Affairs Center, when the U.S. 
Embassy was taken over on No- 
vember 4. 

The letter, written on heavy 
typewriter-style paper, was the first 
word Royer's family had received 
from him since Easter, when they 
got a brief message relayed through 
the Red Cross. 

The letter began: 
"Dear Marianne, A miracle 
recently occurred. In two days I 
received more letters from my 
mother than in the previous six 

Royer said that since "day 136" 
(in mid-March) he has been in a 
small room with two other hostages. 
He said, however, that he had only 
recently been allowed to talk with 
his roommates. 

"We obviously thought things 
might be winding down," Royer 
wrote. "Instead we got the Iran 
around." Mrs. Stevens said the pun 
is typical of Royer's sense of humor.

start of a cross country meet this season. 

Royer said he and the other 
hostages "arise leisurely at 9 ajn. 
for continental breakfast" and take 
turns being led blindfolded to the 

After breakfast, he said, the 
hostages are returned to their 
"pallets for additional rest." 

He said lunch comes about 1:30 
p.m. and afterward, "the main 
social events tick off like a country 

He said the hostages play card 
games such as solitaire and hearts, 
and read books, of which he said 
there are few good ones left. 

Royer wrote that the hostages 
are allowed to exercise, such as 
running in place, but that he waits 
for his shower days to exercise. 

He said he has "special dispensa- 
tion" to shower three times a week 
instead of the normal two times 
because of a rash. 

Mrs. Stevens said she has never 
known her brother to have a rash 
of any kind. 

Jamie Perkins of Jasper, Texas and Cheryl King of Scottsboro, 
Alabama, students at Sewanee Academy, look over the signatures 
of schoolmates on the oversize card sent to Academy alumnus 
William B. Royer, who is one of the hostages in Iran. 

He said dinner—' 'usually soup"- 
comes shortly after 9 p.m. Then, 
he said, the hostages are left with 
little to do. 

On rare occasions, the hostages 
have been shown television movies 
such as Laurel and Hardy features, 
Royer wrote. He said the evening 
hours sometimes are spent listening 
to student demonstrations "outside 
our building." 

He said his day usually ends 
about 2 a.m., when he is "tired 
enough to go to sleep." 

Mrs. Stevens said the letter was 
the first she has received directly 
from her brother. The last letter 
Mrs. Royer received from her son 
was on January 8. 

Great Year 
in Sports 


The Academy soccer team came in 
like lambs this year and went out 
like Tigers, winning the Mid-State 
District Championship before 
hosting the State Tournament in 
which they finished second. 

The core of last season's team— 
the team that won the state and 
Dixie Conference titles— was mostly 
lost to graduation. 

Coach Phil White worked some 
of his magic once again, and the 
Tigers posted a 5-2-1 record in the 
regular season. 

Led by their captains, Forrest 
Weatherly of Anniston, Alabama 
and Tom Cross of Sewanee, the 
Tigers defeated such nearby rivals 
as Saint Andrews and Webb, 
struggling only against some of 
the larger opponents from Chatta- 
nooga. Then they knocked off 
Hixson 3-1 for the mid-state title, 
with Frank Wendling getting a pair 
of early goals. Goalie BUI Thrower 
had twelve saves in that game. 


The Academy volleyball squad put 
together a truly outstanding season, 
closing out with a 17-6 record and 
a berth in the region toumey. 

Competing against much larger 
schools most of the season, this 
squad of young women was runner- 
up in the district to Franklin 
County, their nemesis throughout 
the fall. 

The fine season is attributable 
to the work and planning of Coach 
Donna Wallace extending back to 
last season and before. 

The team's captain, Irene 
Finney of Chapel Hill, North Caro- 
lina, was named to the All-Region 
Team and was named the most 
valuable player in the district. Julia 
Cart of Charleston, South Carolina 
and Alicia Wendling of Sewanee 
were named to the All-District 
Team also. 

Cross Country 

Johanna Granville of Tampa, Florida 
was the top runner on the women's 
cross country team that finished 
fifth in the twenty-two-team Mid- 
State Conference. 

Johanna, who was team cap- 
tain, took fifth place in the region 
championships and tenth in the 
conference. Her best time over a 
two-mile course was twelve minutes, 
thirty-six seconds. 

During the regular season, Payne 
Breazeale's Academy team ran no 
worse than second in any meet 
and was first three times. The com- 
petition often included large publ c 
high schools. 

The best news of all may be 
that the entire team, including 
Johanna, is expected to return next 
fall. The members include Lisa 
Meeks, Lisa McCrady, Rebecca 
Flynn, Emily Patterson, Emily 
Looney, Trisha Miller, Tracy Spaul- 
ding, and Sandy Lossmann. 

A World of Classrooms 

Aside from its basic College curriculum, Sewanee has 
developed in recent years some significant opportunities 
for students which take them away from the Mountain. 
On these pages are several short features about these 
off-campus programs. 

European Institute 

Becoming a "well-rounded person" 
is a basic requirement for gradua- 
tion at Sewanee, and for many stu- 
dents, this includes experience 

One of the finer European 
study programs open to Sewanee 
students is the Institute of European 
Studies (IES), of which Sewanee is 
one of thirty-six select affiliated 
universities. The institute, well 
known for the academic excellence 
of its programs, has seven centers 
for study scattered throughout 
England, France, Spain, Germany, 
and Austria. 

(Students need not be limited 
to IES cities. Some spend a junior 
year or semester abroad by con- 
tacting universities directly. The 
faculty liaison in these cases is 
James Davidheiser, associate pro- 
fessor of German, who also is the 
advisor in the EES program.) 

As one might expect, Sewanee 
students seem mostly to prefer the 
English centers, although admission 
there is much more competitive. 
Of the seven Sewanee students 
sent abroad last year by the IES, 
five studied at centers in England. 

Students may spend either a 
semester or an entire year at most 
centers, though some such as Lon- 
don have only one-semester 

The IES centers provide courses 
taught by European professors, 
many of whom have visited the 
United States and are familiar with 
the differences and difficulties an 
American student might encounter 
in Europe. A student may also take 
courses at the hosting university 
if he chooses. 

The IES considers housing an 
important factor in integrating the 
student into the community and 
arranges housing at as many of its 
centers as possible. Accommoda- 
tions do vary, however. One Sewa- 
nee co-ed recalls sharing a London 
flat with four other girls, whereas 
another helped with the regular 
household duties of her hosting 
French family. 

En route to Oxford this summer, Mary B. Cox, C y 81, and Cacky 

, Sullivan, C , 82, enjoy a ride on the Thames. 

Perhaps the most educational 
aspect of the IES program is trainee- 
ships, which give a student on-the- 
job experience in such fields as 
business, government, international 
affairs, economics, and teaching. 
Often providing academic credit, 
these internships are arranged by 
the center's program director, who 
is usually a native of the area. 

Lindsay Coates, a College senior, 
held a particularly enviable trainee- 
ship during her stay at the IES cen- 
ter in London. She was a research 
assistant for the junior Spokesman 
for Defense in the British Parlia- 
ment. The job not only provided 
her with first-hand experience with 
British politics, but a trip to Paris 
as well for a week-long Western 
European Conference. 

Although the Institute expects 
a high level of academic perform- 
ance, it balances classroom learning 
with practical experience. Many 
students participate in field studies, 
which augment concurrent class- 
room work, or in recreational group 
outings during extended vacations. 
Of course, there are plenty of 
individual trips as well, depending 
on the structure of the particular 
IES center. 

Most returning Sewaeee students 
feel their time in Europe was 
worthwhile and challenging. Lind- 
say observed that "going away 
from Sewanee was valuable. I learned 
I could do well outside a very 
secure environment. It can be pain- 
ful, but you grow a lot." 

— Terrie Sutton, C'82 

Oak Ridge 

Of particular value to a liberal arts 
undergraduate is an opportunity 
to do some specialized study and 
research in a favorite field. When 
that study is done in one of the 
most advanced scientific laboratories 
in the world, the experience be- 
comes invaluable. 

Such is the opportunity Sewa- 
nee students have in the Oak Ridge 
Science Semester. 

Initiated in the early 1970s, the 
study program under the Southern 
College University Union has been 
taking three to six Sewanee stu- 
dents a year. 

Most participating students are 
juniors and seniors majoring in 
biology, chemistry, physics, engin- 
eering, mathematics, and economics, 
though students majoring in social 
science disciplines may also be 

Andy Arbuckle, a senior from 
Columbia, Tennessee, spent last 

spring at Oak Ridge working in the 
Fusion Energy Division of the 
National Laboratory. Given a 
choice of several areas of study, 
Andy chose to write computer pro- 
grams and plan interfaces for 
experiments that could not be 
performed manually. The problems 
concerned research on the control 
of fusion energy. 

"Working at Oak Ridge not 
only gave me an opportunity to 
view scientific research in a very 
sophisticated laboratory, it allowed 
me to meet some interesting 
people," said Andy. "I also talked 
with people from schools where I 
am considering doing graduate 

As a result of his work last 
spring, Andy was one of a selected 
group of students who entered the 
summer Research Participation Pro- 
gram at Oak Ridge. The summer 
program is sponsored by the U.S. 
Department of Energy, as is the 
Science Semester. 

Far from a semester of obser- 
vation and note-taking, the Oak 
Ridge Semester requires of its stu- 
dents a schedule of work and pre- 
determined goals. 

"It's no piece of cake," said 
one research assistant. "It's a 
full 40-hour-plus work week." 

The students receive hands-on 
experience and academic credit 
as well. The Oak Ridge Semester- 
including research participation, 
one resident course (or independent 
study course), and the seminar 
series— is considered equal to one 
full term's work, or a 
of 16 semester hours. 

Barbara Walton, an employee 
in the Environmental Science 
Division who was an advisor to 
Sewanee's Ed Maggart in 1979, 
explained the rewards to both 
researcher and student: "First, I 
find answers to problems I don't 
have time to research myself. 
Second, with respect to the pro- 
jects assigned to Ed, I'm not under 
pressure to reap immediate results. 
His findings may be exploratory 
in nature, suggesting new ideas 
for research." 

In his semester Maggart was 
investigating the effects of acridine, 
a chemical by-product of coal 
conversion, on insects. 

John Bordley, associate pro- 
fessor of chemistry at Sewanee, and 
Sherwood Ebey, professor and 
chairman of the mathematics de- 
partment, have each been resident 
faculty in the program, studying 
and doing research while there. 
They are the campus representatives 
for the program and assist students 
with their applications. 

Final selection is not only based 
on grades, which are an important 
factor, but on whether the student's 
background experience fits the 
scientist's current research needs. 

Studies at Oxford 

Cultural shock, jet lag, and other 
features of modem travel could not 
dampen the enthusiasm of the 
Sewanee students and professors 
who attended this summer's British 
Studies at Oxford program. 

Junior Anne Newell represents 
the complete novice to foreign 
study— she and her girl friends ar- 
rived in England and "plopped our- 
selves down in the middle of Lon- 
don and said 'what now?' " She 
said they felt conspicuous wherever 
they went, whether hunting for the 
cheapest bed-and-breakfast in town 
or imitating statues at Stourhead. 
"You could tell the Americans any- 
where—their clothes matched. 
There was a lady wearing a gorgeous 
kilt with a pink polyester blouse. 
She was wearing it like we would 
wear a denim skirt— they're much 
more casual about it over there." 

They met an Oxford resident 
on the plane over, and she took 
them to tea and showed them 
sights unknown to tourists, like a 
country thatehed-roof village "so 
small you could smell the horses." 
Other new friends "took us by the 
hand and showed us how to ride 
the 'tube'." 

They picnicked on the beach 
at St. Andrews, Scotland, and 
"made a spectacle of ourselves by 
riding the donkeys that were meant 
for children of about six." Edin- 
burgh Castle was an experience of 

a different sort: "There was some 
kind of electrical storm, and when 
we got near the cannon all our 
hair stood on end." 

Erling Riis, a senior who went 
to Oxford last year and was back 
this year as an assistant, had high 
praise for the program and for its 
dean, Yerger Clifton, A'48. "Dr. 
Clifton gets the best speakers of 
any of these programs over there," 
he said. (It is .sponsored by the 
Southern College and University 
Union, an eight-school consortium 
of which Sewanee is a member.) 

Erling went early last year, and 
with Bill Inge and Tom Edwards 
traveled by Brit-Rail pass from 
one end of England to the other 
before the British Studies program 
began, not knowing he would get 
a chance to return. This year as an 
assistant he has had a good look 
at the backstage side (assistants are 
on scholarships in return for help- 
ing with logistics) and had some 
speculation on why the illustrious 
lecturers are glad to speak at the 
British Studies program, ¥Dr. 
Clifton entertains them so well," 
he said. "He fixes up a room with 
his own antiques, down to carpet 
and doorknobs, and gives them real 
old-fashioned hospitality." 

Riis said Dr. Clifton also gets 
top students for the program, 
which gives six hours credit. "The 
one down the road run by the Uni- 
versity of Alabama had a speaker 
only twice a week, and they got 
seven or eight hours credit." 

He said some of the speakers, 
like the Countess Jellico or the 
director of the Victoria and Albert 
Museum, "won't speak for any of 
the programs but ours." 

Riis also talked at length about 
the camaraderie, both among the 
students and between the students 
and the faculty and speakers. "The 
professors that go over there are 
great," he said. "Dr. (John) Reish- 
man and Dr. (Robert) Benson 
would gather us on the steps every 
night and say 'which pub do you 
want to go to this time?' like the 
Pied Piper. One guy from the 
University of Texas— where he had 
been in a freshman class of 1,000 

taught by TV— was amazed that 
a professor could even be like that." 

Several of the students from 
larger universities seemed to feel 
that Sewanee retains on this side 
of the Atlantic a little of the special 
feeling they had in Oxford, and 
they visited here on their way back 
to school this fall, and even came 
to party weekend and homecoming. 

There are differences, though. 
The dormitory attendants (called 
"scouts") who look after the stu- 
dents make their beds and act as 
waiters at meals. "We were used to 
Gailor— we weren't used to sitting 
down and being served," says Anne. 
She said the scouts consider theirs 
a profession and take a lot of 
pride in their jobs. "But you still 
see a lot of class system over 
there," she said. 

Wes Andress had friends in 
England, a retired banker and his 
family, and some students stayed 
a while with them and got informed 
opinions on the British economy 
as well as many other subjects. 
"English people just love to talk," 
said Erling Riis. Anne Newell 
agreed. "The people were really 
friendly, except an occasional one 
with a prejudice against 'Yanks'," 
she said. The Southern students 
hotly denied being Yankees, anyway. 

She said London is really too 
cosmopolitan to seem very English, 
and some of the students who 
weren't very used to big cities even 
in this country were somewhat 
taken aback by "weirdos with 
safety pins in their cheeks and pink 
hair. In some places we were glad 
we were in a big group." 

The language barrier was felt 
especially in the different slang. 
"We shocked a few people by 
accident," said Anne. "They shock- 
ed us a few times too." The Sewa- 
nee girls raised a few English 

France* Kitchens 

eyebrows by ordering a pint of beer 
(it isn't ladylike to order a pint; 
you're supposed to order a half, 

Anne was impressed with the ' 
opportunity to see "pubs where 
somebody sat, like T. S. Eliot, or 
a whole room full of Hogarths that 
I had studied about in art history. 
We felt like experts after that." 

Dr. Reishman was pleased to be 
able to show his students the 
actual places they hear about in 
class. "English literature can get 
pretty abstract in this country," 
he said. They went to Bath, Salis- 
bury, and Winchester, and are read- 
ing a novel where the characters 
go on the same journey. "It was 
fun to show them the real thing," 
he said. 

The food fills a place in every 
student's memory of the trip. 
Steak and kidney pie, fish and 
chips, tea, even a home-cooked 
English meal still occasionally left 
the students homesick for ham- 
burgers, and soft drinks with ice. 
—Gale Link 


Every summer a select number of 
students from all over the world 
travel to the industrial city of 
Coventry, England to participate 
in a ministry of reconciliation. 
They are international student 
guides, and for the past three years, 
Sewanee has sent at least one stu- 
dent each summer to participate in 
the program. 

These guides are part of the 
many out-reach programs sponsor- 
ed by the Community of the Cross 
of Nails, a world-wide organization 
for reconciliation and Christian 
renewal, which has its base and

origin at Saint Michael's Cathedral, 
Coventry . 

Approximately twenty students 
live together for eight weeks, 
working in the cathedral, a brass 
r ibbing center, a hostel run by the 
cathedral, a coffee house, and a 
center for young people. Their 
principal duty, however, is to give 
guided tours of the cathedral and 
to answer questions about its 
bombing, reconstruction, and 

The student guides' week begins 
at 7 a.m. each Monday morning 
with corporate communion follow- 
ed by breakfast, a staff Bible study, 
and staff meeting. Afterward they 
disperse to their separate duties, 
but keep in close touch throughout 
the week by various "get togethers" 
and evaluation sessions. 

As well as work, the students' 
ministry also includes study. They 
spend many evenings with the 
cathedral's clergy, learning about 
each one's special field of ministry 
and about the cathedral's history. 
For those interested in a particular 
field of study such as the cathedral's 
Benedictine roots, a tutor is avail- 
able to guide them in their work. 
Although there is much to be 
learned, study is conducted in a 
casual friendly atmosphere, which 
helps draw the guides into the 
cathedral community. 

Terri Griggs, a College senior 
and student guide in 1979, summed 
up her experience with the com- 
munity by describing the hospital- 
ity and concern shown the students. 
Students were often invited to 
parishioners' homes, and once some 
of the American students threw a 
Fourth of July party to show their 
friends what American food was 
really like. 

The international character of 
the program also has its rewards, 
says Elise Bullock, a junior just re- 
turned from a summer in Coventry. 

"It was the best experience I 
ever had. My bunk-mate was from 
Poland. It was a real experience 
breaking the barrier." 

According to Elise, there is 
nothing quite like the close quarters 
of the rooming-house to teach 
patience and understanding. 

Both Elise and Terri were 
quick to point out that the program 
was not all heaven and holy water. 
Terri had particularly vivid memo- 
ries of the rough kids in the neigh- 
borhood coffee shop. 

"They would come in and buy 
tea, and just sit around and smoke 
cigarettes and say things. . . to try 
to shock you." However, she did 
learn to adjust. "The rough people 
are part of Coventry," she ex- 

Elise had similar memories: 
"You really have to be able to 
work with people you don't always 
agree with." 

There is plenty to keep the 
guides busy in Coventry, but the 

cathedral staff understands the 
allure of a foreign country. The 
students are given plenty of time 
for short trips and to make a few 
excursions as a group. 

How do the student guides feel 
about their summer work? Elise 
replied, "When I got back, I wanted 
to tell the world about it!"

Located on the North Sea coast, 
Kiel, Germany, is a port city of 
some 400,000 people. Known for 
its excellent sailing conditions 
throughout Europe, Kiel served as 
the site for the 1972 Olympic 
sailing competitions. The modern 
facilities constructed for this event 
today form the regional center for 
sailing activities which attract 
Europeans to Kiel during the warm- 
er summer months.

Anderson were the first group of 
Sewanee students to take part in 
the thirty-second year of the pro- 
gram. The summer theme, which 
varies every year, was "Germany 
and its Neighbors." 

Intensive language courses in 
the mornings were complemented 
by political and cultural lectures in 
the afternoons. These were given by 
guest speakers from around Ger- 
many such as the German author 
Walter Kempowski. 

Also offered in the afternoons 
were special courses in the different 
dialects of Germany. Wednesdays 
and Saturdays were scheduled for 
group excursions within Schleswig- 
Holstein to cultural and historic 
centers of importance. 

Trips were also made to Ham- 
burg as well as a day excursion to 
Denmark by ship. These excursions 
were led by well-trained guides 
of the area and were conducted in

A Celebration of Sewanee 

Before he began to read, Richard 
Tillinghast recognized aloud for us 
the significance of reading his poem 
in Convocation Hall. It is easy to 
sense that all of Sewanee's history 
is somehow deposited in that great 
Victorian Gothic structure. What 
those paneled walls have not absorb- 
ed directly, they have absorbed 
secondhand, much as they would 
that night from the art of Richard 

Tillinghast, C'62, recent mem- 
ber of the faculty, now teaching 
creative writing at Harvard, was 
about to serve up in a most unusual 
way some slices of Sewanee history. 
It was to be in lines of poetry, more 
than 700 lines, divided into five 
parts. The title was "Sewanee in 
Ruins," and for the sake of history, 
the night was this fall, October 20. 

Professor Edwin Stirling, in 
his introduction of Tillinghast, said 
facetiously he had tried to per- 
suade Richard to call the poem 
"Yea, Sewanee's Right!" without 
success. The title, "Sewanee in 
Ruins," does strike a slightly sensi- 
tive nerve .somewhere within us. 

Though the underlying theme 
is, in fact, a contemplation of 
Sewanee being in ruins, the poem 
is more than that. In it the major 
and minor players in Sewanee's 
past are raised out of their dusty 
archival graves and given personali- 
ties. Washed in poetry, Tillinghast's 
at least, they achieve believability 
and credibility. 

Tillinghast's words thereby strip 
Sewanee of its ill-worn mantle of 
self-importance, while making it 
seem to his listeners and readers 
more important still. 

Certainly to those who were 
there that night, history is impor- 
tant, as important as poetry, and 
Sewanee history is important. 
There is a great curiosity about 
Sewanee's curious history. The 
evening proved that. For there 
crowded into Convocation Hall to 
hear Tillinghast the largest audience 
ever to attend such an event in 
Sewanee. That was the confident 
speculation of those, who note 
such things. Chairs kept being 
brought in to the rear of the hall 
until the crowd had spread to the 
west-end door, and some students 
propped themselves in the inviting 

Tillinghast has given readings 
in Sewanee" before, but nothing 
has approached the popularity of 
the reading of "Sewanee in Ruins." 

Other more famous poets (for now) 
have read in Sewanee without 
such success. The Irish poet, Seamus 
Heaney, drew an appreciative group 
a year or two ago, but nothing like 

Because of its size and attentive- 
ness, the audience made the reading 
a celebration of Sewanee. Those 
who were there became aware, as 
perhaps they had not fceen before, 
of the deep-running associations 
and feelings we all have for this 
place on the Mountain^ . 

It is important to know that 
this kind of event still happens. 

An effort is being made to pub- 
lish the poem at the University 
Press so that it might be available 
generally and sold at St. Luke's 
Book Store. A note in our March 
issue will say whether that effort is 

Bishops' Visit 

Almost 100 of the 170 bishops 
attending the 1980 interim meeting 
of the House of Bishops in Chatta- 
nooga were guests October 5 at 
the University. 

The bishops, many accompanied 
by their wives, attended a brunch 
at the home of Vice-Chancellor 
and Mrs. Robert M. Ayres. Follow- 
ing the brunch and a brief tour of 
the domain, they attended the 
Sunday Eucharist Service in All 
Saints' Chapel. 

Lytle Fund 

Andrew Lytle, author, professor 
emeritus of English, and a former 
editor of the Sewanee Review, was 
honored by ■ he University October 4 
with the dedication of a bronze 
bust of Mr. T ytle in duPont Library. 
The bust was sculpted by Maria 
Kirby-Smith of Sewanee and Phila- 
delphia, Pennsylvania. 

■ A crowd in excess of 100 of 
Mr. Lytle's colleagues, former stu- 
dents, admirers, and friends filled 
the front lounge of duPont to help 
pay tribute to one of Sewanee's 
most distinguished literary figures. 
The dedication was one of the high- 
lights of homecoming weekend. 

Mr. Lytle spoke briefly with his 
usual perceptiveness and humor. 
He said he had never been request- 
ed to pose for anything before and 
recalled that when asked by Maria 
last winter if he would pose for 
her, he had asked if the weather 
wasn't a bit chilly. 

In conjunction with the dedi- 
cation, a permanently endowed 
book fund was created in Mr. Lytle's 
name to which gifts may be made 
for the duPont collection. 

Honorary Degree 

Robert S. Lancaster, former dean 
and professor of political science, 
received an honorary D.Litt. degree 
October 24 from Hampden-Sydney 
College, his alma mater. Dean 
Lancaster already holds an hono- 
rary degree from Sewanee. 

Golden McCradys 
Former Vice-ChanceDor and Mrs. 
Edward McCrady celebrated their 
fiftieth wedding anniversary this 
past summer, and the occasion 
drew all the McCrady children, 
grandchildren, aunts, uncles, and 
perhaps a few cousins from their 
far-flung homes. 

Dr. and Mrs. McCrady are in 
England this Advent semester while 
Dr. McCrady is directing genetic 
research in Sussex at the invitation 
of an English research institute. The 
work is concerned with finding out 
why human fetuses are not rejected 
by their mothers, whereas the hu- 
man body normally rejects foreign 
tissue. The findings could be sig- 
nificant in organ transplants and 
cancer research. 

Loyalty and Love 

Mrs. Henry Gass, a long-time resi- 
dent of Sewanee, was honored 
recently at the halftime of the 
varsity football game with Rose- 
Hulman for her support of football 
and basketball during more than 
fifty years. She is also remembered 
by many students who have lived 
in the Gass home at the corner of 
University and Texas j

Chitty, University historiographers, 
have added sketches of GaUor, 
W. A. Guerry, Bishop Juhan, Alex- 
ander Guerry, and Edward 
McCrady to those in the first and 
second editions— Otey, Polk, Elliott, 
Quintard, Hodgson, Fairbanks, 
Kirby-Smith, DuBose, and others. 
An index and some new pictures 
have also been added. 

All alumni should have re- 
ceived announcements and order 
forms. Copies may be purchased 
for $10 (hard cover) or $7.50 (soft 
cover)', plus $1.50 for packing and 
postage, from St. Luke's Book 
Store in Sewanee. 

Thirtieth Year 

The Emerald-Hodgson Hospital 
Auxiliary celebrated thirty years of 
organized volunteer service this 
year. In partial recognition of that, 
the organization awarded a $100 
Mary Phillips Kirby-Smith Scholar- 
ship to a Franklin County High 
School senior. Mrs. Kirby-Smith 
was the association's first president. 

The organization's main pro- 
ject continues to be the operation 
of the Hospitality Shop. Funds 
raised from this and other activities 
are used primarily for the hospital. 

It was at historic first when the heads of the three academic divisions 
recently co-celebrated at the Sunday Eucharist in All Saints' Chapel. 
From left are the Rev. D. Roderick Welles, Academy headmaster; 
the Very Rev. Urban T. Holmes, dean of the School of Theology, 
and W. Brown Patterson, dean of the College. 

Stability and a Future 

by Arthur M. Schaefer 

The beginning of a new decade is 
as good a time as any to review the 
events of the past three years in 
the life of Sewanee ; to take stock, 
so to speak, of where we were and 
where we are in order that we may 
thereby identify reference points 
for a clearer perspective for the 

The state of the University in 
July of 1977 needs little reitera- 
tion. Budgetary and consequent 
cash flow problems were so serious 
that it appeared unlikely that the 
University could continue to meet 
its financial obligations. Effective 
leadership at the top was lacking, 
and the University's assets, physical 
and financial, were declining. 

The consequence for Sewanee 
at that time, as it has been and is 
for other institutions of higher 
education faced with similarly 
serious administrative and financial 
problems, was a collapse of morale 
and loss of administrative credi- 
bility internally. This was accom- 
panied by the development of 
antagonism, hostility, suspicion of 
intrigue and deception, and anxiety 
regarding the future. 

All of these develop easily and 
quickly on a campus under such 
conditions. If allowed to persist, 
they ultimately destroy the very 
fiber of an educational institution 
by diverting the energies of its 
faculty members from their primary 
roles of teaching and research, by 
discouraging intellectual activity, 
and by undermining that will to 
strive for excellence so essential to 
continued academic and moral 
vigor and growth. Inevitably, also, 
the effects of unwholesome con- 
ditions on campus spill over and 
infect the external constituencies 
of an educational institution— alum- 
ni, friends, donors, school coun- 
selors, and current and prospective 
students; all those whose continued 
belief in and support of the institu- 
tion are so vital to its ongoing 
existence and development. 

Among the measures deemed 
necessary to reverse the course of 
the University, the administration 
considered the following most 

Mr. Schaefer, professor of economics, 
was named University .provost in 
1977 but remains a member of the 
teaching faculty. 

1) Restructuring and strength- 
ening the management organization 
in critical areas together with the 
development of a professional and 
competent management team 

2) Revision of budgetary poli- 
cies so that budgets would reflect 
agreed-upon priorities, represent 
realistic and attainable estimates of 
income and expenditure, and there- 
by become genuine operating plans 
for a given fiscal year 

3) Establishment of fee and 
pricing structures consistent with 
the needs of the budget, with the 
competitive and economic climate, 
and with reasonable expectations of 
income from other sources such as 
gifts and endowment 

4) Institution of rigorous stan- 
dards of budgetary control and 

5) Improvement of cash flow 
via appropriate budgeting, budgetary 
control, and revision of fee and 
pricing structures 

6) Review of the mission and 
performance of each operating 
division or subdivision, in terms 
of its contribution to the overall 
purposes of the University as well 
as of its financial impact on the 
University with the objective of 
either restructuring and upgrading 
performance or divesting, if such 
were necessary and consistent with 
the University's goals 

7) Institution of in-depth 
analyses of particular operating 
problems in order to formulate 
consistent and rational policies and 
procedures for their solution 

8) Re-establish morale and 
credibility on campus and with the 
University's external constituencies 

9) Anticipate future directions 
in the social environment and in 
economic, demographic, and gov- 
ernmental trends in order to 
prepare the University for their 
expected impact 

10) Improve faculty and staff 
coi, sensation and institute a 
rational program for staff compen- 
sation based on job evaluation 

11) Establish the conditions 
for and plan a capital funds cam- 
paign adequate to sustain the 
strength of Sewanee in the coming 

While the full achievement of 
all these objectives would not be 
possible in the short spac^ of three 
years, the University has initiated 
measures to achieve them all, and 
has made substantial advances 
toward the realization of many of 

That progress has led to opera- 
ting surpluses over the past three 
years of $341,000, $328,000, and 
$334,000, effecting thereby a 
reduction of the accumulated 
deficit from $1,207,000 in 1977 
to $204,000 in 1980. 

As a consequence, cash flow 
has materially improved, the threat 
of insolvency has receded, and a 
net savings in interest cost of 
approximately $100,000 a year 
has been realized. 

But the most significant impact 
of the progress made is the creation 
of these conditions prerequisite to a 
successful capital, funds campaign. 
We may undertake that great and 
crucial effort with assurance, sus- 
tained by the realization that 
internally the University's house is 
rapidly approaching good order 
and, externally, confidence and 
credibility have been re-established 
in the mission, purpose, and viability 
of Sewanee. 

The new decade, by all ac- 
counts, will be one of the most 
difficult in the history of higher 
education in this country. Economic 
and demographic factors will not 
be conducive to the survival of 
institutions of higher education, 
especially those in the private 
sector. Many are expected to perish. 

Those that do survive will do so 
because they are recognized for 
their excellence, because they offer 
an educational experience that is 
perceived as unique and distinctive, 
because they are managed in a 
manner sufficient to command high 
credibility, because they are well 

endowed, and because they have 
been able to capture the imagina- 
tion and resolve of those whose 
active support is essential to the 
endurance of a University. An 
enormous amount of work remains 
to be done to ensure that Sewanee 
continues to meet these require- 
ments ever more fully. 

Enduring efforts must be made 
in devising ways to deal with the 
ravages of inflation and in assessing 
the impact of demographic change 
on Sewanee and formulating meth- 
ods to assure a continuing stream 
of highly qualified applicants. 
We must continue to strengthen 
the financial foundations of the 

We must critically examine the 
University's purpose and clearly 
articulate the meaning and signifi- 
cance of a value-oriented liberal 
arts education in a world pre- 
occupied with technical vocation- 
alism. Programs must be designed 
to enhance the worth of the Se- 
wanee experience and perhaps 
extend it beyond the immediate 
boundaries of the campus. Efforts 
must also be made to cope-with 
the massive growth in government- 
al regulations and to effect solu- 
tions to other problems of equal 

Sewanee's basic strengths, if 
properly nurtured, should suffice 
to place it high among those 
institutions of higher education 
which will emerge from this decade 
with ever greater luster than they 
entered it. 

Faculty Notes 

Richard O'Connor, assistant pro- 
fessor of anthropology, is spending 
the year abroad studying urbaniza- 
tion in Southeast Asia under a 
Fulbright grant. He and his family 
will live in Singapore, and he will 
travel to neighboring countries in 
connection with his work. The 
research is being done in coopera- 
tion with the Institute of South- 
east Asia Studies of the University 
of Singapore. Professor O'Connor 
has already done extensive traveling 
in the area in connection with his 
anthropological studies. 

Jane B. Fort, assistant professor 
of Spanish, will spend most of her 
year on sabbatical leave in Madrid, 
updating and rewriting an analysis 
of the contemporary novel of 
Spanish America, which she began 
as a doctoral dissertation. Spain 
has become the center of publica- 
tion and home for many of the 
Spanish-American novelists. 

John V. Reishman, associate pro- 
fessor of English, and Dale Richard- 
son, chairman of the English

of plants. 

Edward Carlos, chairman of the 
fine arts department, spent part of 
the summer studying at the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota under a grant 
from the National Endowment for 
the Humanities. The subject of his 
work was the recurrent images of 
Dionysus in art history. 

Thomas Spaccarelli, assistant pro- 
fessor of Spanish, is spending a 
semester of sabbatical leave in 
Spain doing research on romance 
in medieval Spanish literature. Of 
particular interest to him is the

teaching in England 

Maynes, a late 14th century quasi- 
chivalric romance and one of many 
tales contained in a codex housed 
at El Escorial just outside Madrid. 
Professor Spaccarelli plans to tran- 
scribe all the works in the codex 
so that he can continue his research 
in Sewanee. During the summer 
he completed a critical edition of 
Noble cuento, working under a 
stipend from the National Endow- 
ment for the Humanities. He also 
received a post-doctoral research 
grant under the auspices of the 
Treaty of Friendship between Spain 
and the U.S. which will help support 
his sabbatical research.

First Family, by Patrick Anderson, 
C'57. Simon & Schuster, $9.95.) 

Although a lot of publicity attend- 
ed the 1979 publication of First 
Family, we somehow missed taking 
note of it in the Sewanee News. 
Anderson, who has been a reporter 
for the Nashville Tennessean, 
speechwriter for President Carter, 
and aide in the administrations of 
Kennedy and Johnson, has written 
"the ultimate insider's political 
novel." Its publication aroused 
speculation among Washingtonians 
(and Washington watchers) on who 
provided the model for which 

Anderson's President Painter 
combines facets of both Carter and 
Johnson, and presidential aide 
Hamilton Jordan was rumored to 
be the inspiration for his colorful 
but sometimes embarrassing right- 
hand man. The book's central 
character, the president's wife, 
doesn't bear much resemblance to 
recent political wives, being gentle, 
sensitive and not much interested 
in politics. Her emotional collapse 
under the pressures of politics 
provides Anderson with the vehicle 
for making his point about the 
effect of public life on the private 
lives of people in high places. 
Despite President Painter's strong 
sense of morality his White House 
becomes "a pressure cooker of 

The First Lady's psychiatrist 
puts the dilemma in perspective 
when he points out that "If you 
leave aside history and pretty furni- 
ture and all, and look at it ob- 
jectively, you're living in a fairly 
small apartment in a large govern- 
ment-office complex, and it's got a 
fence around it to keep out the 
crazies. . . . and all the while you 
have reporters watching every move 
you make — I mean, there's no way 
you could call this life normal." 

The fictional president is from 
Tennessee, and several references 
to real-life Tennessee places are 
found in the book. Anderson, an 
old Washington hand, surrounds 
his characters with authentic details, 
but the mechanics of policy-making 
or insights into national issues are 
peripheral to the main theme of 
the book, the effects of power on 
the people that wield it and on 
their close associates. 

As the New York Times Book 
Review stated, "Anderson. . . makes 
a convincing case that the White 
House is apt to leach the humanity 
from anybody." 

Christian Believing (Volume I, the 
Church's Teaching Series), by 
Urban T. Holmes III and John H. 
Westerhoff III (New York: The 
Seabury Press, 1979) 

Christian Believing provides an 
introduction to all the volumes of 
the Church's Teaching Series, not 
because it attempts to summarize 
or preview what is to follow but 
because it provides the reader with 
insights into what happens when a 
person is engaged in the act we call 

Religion always expresses itself 
within a specific history and cul- 
ture, using the forms of that culture 
as the means of expressing faith. 
So, today, we express our faith in 
twentieth century, American, mostly 
middle-class ways. 

Yet there is always the danger 
of allowing the central truth of 
our common experience of the 
gospel to become enslaved to par- 
ticular forms of expression. By 
exploring basic religious experiences 
this book attempts. to open us to 
the ways in which we use language, 
ritual, logic, and moral codes to 
express our basic religious experi- 

Hence, although their starting 
place is different, Holmes and 
Westerhoff seek to achieve the same 
thing that Barth and Brunner sought 
in their generation: namely, to 
allow the Gospel to cut through the 
layers of cultural accretion and 
speak its prophetic truth afresh to 
the new age. 

We are a generation that has 
accepted the scientific method as 
the one intellectually respectable 
method for knowing reality. For 
example, Christian people who are 
arguing these days for "scientific 
creationism" are often trying to 
show just what good science reli- 
gion can be. They make the hidden 
assumption that religion will be 
more acceptable if it is shown to 
be another form of science. 

Christian Believing, on the 
other hand, makes a strong and 
cogent case for the integrity of 
religious knowing in itself. Chris- 
tians, it claims, do not have to see 
a conflict between science and 
religion or between religion and 
the intellectual community, nor 
must religion be forced to define 
itself in any other terms but its 
own. God is the author of both 
reason and revelation. Ultimately 
there is no quarrel; the quarrel is 
found only when narrow religious 

dogmatism comes face to face with 
a narrow scientific dogmatism. 

Christian Believing is a good 
book. It is not an easy book and 
would best be studied in small 
groups under the leadership of a 
well-educated layman or clergyman. 

The issues it raises cannot be 
ignored by the serious, thinking 
Christian person. Furthermore, a 
careful study of this book will 
enlighten the rest of the journey 
through the superb exploration of 
the Christian faith that is provided 
by this new Church Teaching Series.

Handbook on Orchid Photography, 
by Grenville Seibels II, C'43 (Amer- 
ican Orchid Society, Cambridge, 
Massachusetts, $5.95) 

This book combines three of 
Gren Seibels' talents— journalism, 
orchids, and photography. Written 
with renowned orchid photographer 
Charles Marden Fitch, the volume 
has many color illustrations to 
inspire and instruct the photog- 
rapher of these fascinating plants. 
Gren and his wife took up growing 
orchids at their Columbia, South 
Carolina home in 1972 and now 
have over 2,000 orchids. 

P. T. Barnum Presents Jenny Lind, 
by W. Porter Ware; A'22, C'26, and 
Thaddeus C. Lockard, Jr. (Louisiana 
State University Press, 1980) 

Although the phonograph 
arrived too late in history to cap- 
ture her voice, W. Porter Ware and 
Thaddeus C. Lockard, Jr. have in 
their latest collaboration— P. T. 
Barnum Presents Jenny Lind— 
turned back the clock and present- 
ed us with front row seats for an 
unprecedented look at the Swedish 

Their book comes from the 
1850-52 American tour which Lind 
gave largely under the management 
of America's premier showman, 
Phineas T. Barnum. From the very 
first page, the reader becomes 
involved in the negotiations, logis- 
tics, and day-to-day peaks and 
valleys which faced Jenny Lind and 
her entourage of musicians and 
singers as they journeyed in a literal 
blaze of triumph around the country. 

Genero usly interspersed 
throughout the text are eyewitness 
accounts and contemporary reports 
which add a flavor of you-were-there 
authenticity to the book. 

This is not just a book for 
singers, or musicians, or even music 
lovers, but one for the nostalgia 
buff and the social historian as well. 
Marvelous tid-bits of information 
emerge to remind us that human 
nature is basically the same over the 
years. Besides the abundance of 
Jenny Lind pictures, hats, gloves, 
soap, sheet music, stones, and 
singing tea kettles offered to the 
public by enterprising merchants, 
a real chuckle is elicited when we 
hear that mules in Memphis are 
said to have sported "Jenny Lind 
blinders." Time and again we see 
accounts of the singer's genuine 
concern for less fortunate souls 
shown by the thousands of dollars 
she gave to charitable causes. 

Besides all this there are insights 
into many other areas such as her 
relationship with Barnum, her 
marriage to Otto Goldschmidt, her 
deep religious faith, and passion for 
nature. Of special interest to mu- 
sicians are references to other 
prominent musicians of the day, 
the use of the "new" clarinet, and 
Miss Lind's use of vocal ornamenta- 
tion. Extremely helpful is the 
inclusion of photographs, sheet 
music covers, and sample programs. 

These programs show that 
Jenny Lind averaged only about six 
numbers per concert, the remainder 
supplied by orchestral or instru- 
mental selections, or vocal numbers 
from a baritone or tenor. Not a 
demanding program vocally, con- 
sidering today's standards of V-h- 
2 hours of concert singing by such 
artists as a Fischer-Dieskau or an 
Elly Ameling, but variety concerts 
were the norm in that era, and by 
all reports, those six selections were 
of exquisite artistry. Thanks to Pete 
Ware and Thad Lockard we are able 
to share in that experience which 
moved so many, so long ago.

Dearest Andrew: Letters from V. 
Sackville-West to Andrew Reiber 
1951-1962, edited by Nancy Mac- 
Knight. Charles Scribner's Sons, . 
$8.95 cloth. 

We Americans possess a naivete 
which convinces us that the great 
of this world ought to be and are 

Richard W. Tillinghast, C'62, and Andrew N. Lytte, A'20. 

immediately accessible to us. The 
remarkable discovery we sometimes 
make is that the great of this world 
are just that, accessible. Lea Reiber 
could have had no idea that his 
admiring letter to the renowned 
Vita in March 1951 would initiate 
a literary friendship which would 
last for more than a decade. 

Something in Reiber's first 
letter sparked Sackville-West's imagi- 
nation. She could not know that 
she was beginning a correspondence 
with a man whose life had moved 
from a plantation in Bunkie, Louisi- 
ana to an -eighteenth century 
cottage on the windswept coast 
of Maine at Cape Splipt. Nor could 
she know that this Andrew Reiber 
had appeared in some thirty-six 
stage plays having made his debut 
at Le Petit Theatre de Vieux- 
Carre in New Orleans, or that he 
had sampled the offerings of at 
least five universities including 
Sewanee. What she discovered was 
a man who loved gardens and 

gardening as much as she did and 
wrote with an engaging neighbor- 
liness that could not be denied. 
Vita was hooked and continued the 
correspondence until her death in 

Their letters shared homey de- 
tails of gardens and dogs, the 
weather, incidents of everyday 
life. Though this volume reprints 
Sackville-West's letters only, it is 
easy to reconstruct a warm, happy 
correspondence. There is none of 
the haughtiness of Sackville-West's 
public pose here. She is genial, 
indeed loving, entirely at ease with 
a man whom she had never met, 
and would never meet. This stun- 
ning fact in itself makes the letters 
good reading. They are an amazing 
testament to the mystery of 
kindred souls enjoying one another. 
"A good read," as an English re- 
viewer has said. 

-Don Keck Du Pree, C'73 

loving craft as a means of discovery which owes itself to Sewanee j&nd the 
South. Tillinghast's vivid realizations of scene are not mind-dogged with 
palpable designs on the reader. They are clear and bright; yet never 
divorced from the swelling heart and active mind of a living persona. 
The first lines of the collection's opening poem, "Return," are 
charged with the delight of an active, outward eye.

These are not merely horticultural reports, however. This persona does 
not sit quietly with its observations. With gathering urgency, this eye 
colors and judges, delineating the possibilities of the heart involved. 
Tillinghast skillfully chooses adjectives and comparisons which build to a 
natural disclosure.

$3.95 paper. 

There has been much this fall to remind Sewanee of its share in the 
literary heritage of the twentieth century. In October, this University 
honored Mr. Andrew Lytle for his achievement as author, critic, and 
beloved teacher-editor on this Mountain. More recently, Sewanee students 
and faculty joined in the fiftieth anniversary of the southern manifesto I'll 
Take My Stand, held on the campus at Vanderbilt. This retrospective view 
of the Agrarians and their cause evoked memories of the Fugitive- Agrarians 
and their many Sewanee associations. 

The publication of a new volume of poetry by Richard Tillinghast 
reminds us that our literary associations are vital, not merely retrospective. 
The Knife and Other Poems 

The Knife and Other Poems is an important volume by an alumnus, poet, 
who happily acknowledges his literary roots on this Mountain. These 
poems proclaim a love of craftmanship and language which Tillinghast 
heard celebrated in the classes of men like Charles Harrison, Andrew 
Lytle, and others. These are confident poems, southern in the best sense, 
without waving that banner. Without being derivative, these poems remind 
this reader of Tillinghast's Harvard mentor, Robert Lowell, himself a 
student of a-southern Fugitive- Agrarian, Allen Tate. 

There is a freedom of composition in these poems which, no doubt, 
owes much to Lowell; but there is, more importantly, an understanding of 

and brings up the trout-colored dawn. 

Tillinghast has learned the symbolist's lesson more from painters than 
from poets— to his advantage. Imposing demands are easily denied. The 
demands of these poems are quietly consequential. Yes, they explore 
many persistent twentieth century themes. They seek to understand the 
shadow which falls between viewer and viewed, actor and action; but they 
do so without flourish or compulsion. The vivid eye makes its demands; 
but here, there is no unleapable gulf between that eye and its wonderii^ 
mind. Significances arise of natural consequence: From 'Legends abol t 
Air & Water": 

She leads you like yourself as a child 

where the mountain torrent 
tosses her hair 
like bright water rainbowed and swift as wings 

over rippling gold in sand. 

And tonight you know 
you would rather be 
the little blue bowl at her feet 

—as she looks down the valley from her cabin door— 

than, over her head, 
the starry sky. 

There is, in these poems, willingness to accept the eternal nature of 
the world without foregoing the faithful commitment that with words 
we may occasionally part the veil to look beyond, make discoveries. The 
title poem "Knife" traces one of those occasions when the shadow 
between actor and action fell less darkly. 

I see in its steel 

the worn gold band on my father's hand 
the light in those trees 
the look on my son's face a moment old 

like the river old like the rain 
older than anything that dies can be. 

The quiet commitment to language of these poems is a part of Tilling- 
hast's Sewanee inheritance, our inheritance. These are exciting poems, a 
substantial contribution to our literary heritage.

Jones New 
Head Coach 

Rick Jones, who came to Sewanee 
last year as soccer coach and assis- 
tant basketball coach, was named 
head basketball coach in September. 

He replaced Jerry Waters who 
resigned to accept the head coach- 
ing job at the University of South 
Carolina at Spartanburg. In two 
seasons as head coach at Sewanee, 
Waters compiled a 20-29 record, 
with a second-place finish last year 
in the College Athletic Conference. 

Walter Bryant, Sewanee athletic 
director, said the basketball players 
came to him and asked that Coach 
Jones be named head coach when 
they learned that Waters was leaving. 

"We have all been impressed 
with the enthusiasm and know-how 
of Rick, and I'm confident he will 
keep our program going up," said 
Coach Bryant. 

Jones said he does not anticipate 
any major changes in playing style 
for the Tigers. 

"I like to play a lot of people. 
We'll fast break on offense and run 
a full-court press on defense," he 


Sewanee has recaptured the South- 
eastern Intercollegiate Canoe Cham-

lower classmen and "old" hands 
from the faculty to swamp thirteen 
other teams. 

The Whitewater championships, 
Sewanee's eighth such title in nine 
years, came on October 4 on the 
Catawba River near Morganton, 
North Carolina. 

It was a critical year. Last fall 
Sewanee lost the title for the first 
time in eight years as other schools 
became stronger and more ex- 

Doug Cameron, a bit shaken by 
the defeat after assuming the 
coaching duties from Hugh Caldwell 
last season, joined with returning 
"coach" Steve Puckette to gather 
together an unusually young squad 
of students and some faculty, 
notably Caldwell, Stephen Puckette, 
and Carrie Ashton, the new Outing 
Club director. Sewanee was also 
outnumbered. The prospects were 
not particularly encouraging.

Gary Rowcliffe, a senior goalie from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, makes a

best season ever in soccer. 

"The key was that they all 
raced to their potential," said 
Cameron of his teammates. "If 
anyone had let up, we wouldn't 
have won." 

Picking up points mostly from 
third, fourth, and fifth place 
finishes, Sewanee piled up 297 
points. Western Carolina University 
was a paddle-length behind at 
291V4, and Georgia State, last

Fall Was 
a Thriller 


Sewanee reached a peak in soccer 
this season, winning the conference 
championship, placing second in 
the state, and compiling an overall 
record of 12-2-3. 

The events were particularly 
surprising because last year the 
Tigers had only a single victory in 

The work of coach Rick Jones 
is another in a long line of success 
stories in Sewanee athletics. When 
Jones took over last year, he was 
beginning his first experience in 
college coaching. Early this Novem- 
ber he was named coach of the year 
by his fellow coaches in the Tennes-

The Tigers' championship in the 
College Athletic Conference was 
their first conference title ever and 
came after four straight victories 
in the CAC tournament that ended 
the season. 

At least two of Sewanee's four 
matches were the kind of battles 
that make soccer one of America's 
fastest growing sports. 

In the first game of the tourna- 
ment, Southwestern jumped out to 
a 2-0 lead by the half despite the

good play by the Tigers. Sewanee 
came back to tie the score 2-2 in 
the second half, and the match 
went into overtime. Southwestern 
took the lead again, when with 
1 :40 remaining, Sewanee scored to 
send the match into a penalty 
kickoff, postponed because of 

The next morning, Sewanee 
kickers made five goals in five 
attempts from the penalty line, and 
Southwestern missed one. The 
Tigers were on their way. 

Using the momentum, Sewanee 
took an easy 5-0 victory over Rose- 
Hulman and went into the third 
match with a tough Principia team. 

Sewanee scored first in the 
second half of that match but was 
tied 1-1 before the end of regula- 
tion time. Neither team could score 
in overtime; so for the second time 
in three matches, the Tigers were 
in a kickoff. 

After five kicks, the score was 
tied 4-4, and the suspense grew in 
the second kickoff when Sewanee 
kickers missed their first three 
attempts, and Principia led by a 
goal with two attempts remaining 
for each team. Sewanee tied the 
score, then won when Robert 
Clemmer punched one in and 
Principia missed a final effort. 

So tough had been the over- 
time matches that Sewanee's final 
4-1 victory over Centre was almost 

Coach Jones credits team play 

for the success throughout the fall. 
The high scoring players, Eddie 
McKeithen of St. Petersburg, Flor- 
ida, and Shaun Gormley of Fair- 
field, Connecticut were each named 
to the all-conference team. Mc- 
Keithen was voted most valuable in 
the CAC and was named to the 
All-TISA team. Four other seniors 
contributing were Clemmer, Steve 
Poss, Chris Miller, and Gary Row-

in the overtime victories. 


Sewanee's. football team did not 
meet pre-season expectations, 
which were high after last year's 
conference championship, but it 
demonstrated what fragile hopes 
dreams are often made of. 

Injuries were probably the single 
leading cause of the Tigers' 4-5 
season. Two or three starters were 
lost the first game, and six starters 
were gone by the third. 

Starting quarterback Tim Ten- 
het went out in the sixth game 
when Sewanee was still fighting for 
the conference title. A loss to Rose- 
Hulman in the eighth contest 
ended even those slim hopes. 

It was a strange season of ups 
and downs. The first high came in 
the opening 21-14 victory over 
Illinois College, the newest con- 
ference member. Tenhet passed for 
234 yards and three touchdowns 
to make up for a sluggish round 

The next week, the Tigers lost 
20-10 at Hampden-Sydney despite 
250 yards passing. Middle guard

In the following game against 
Southwestern, the Tigers began to 
climb back into the conference

downs, one on a 55-yard run, and 
Tenhet passed for another.

Tenhet went out with an injury 
just as Sewanee was about to turn 
to two of its toughest opponents. 

The Generals of Washington 
and Lee closed down the running 
game, piled up 350 yards in total 
offense, and won 20-14. 

The next week Sewanee fell 
behind Rose-Hulman early and 
failed to get any big plays in a 
38-7 loss. Hopes of even a share of 
the conference title were gone. 

The season ended at St. Leo 
College where the Tigers took a 
42-14 victory. The defense held the 
Floridians to a minus 31 yards 
running. Robert Holland completed 
16 of 31 passes for 204 yards, and 
Mallory Nimocks, Sewanee's leading 
pass receiver, scored his first touch- 
down of the season.

to a first place ahead of 16 other 

The disappointment came in 
the College Athletic Conference 
Championships in which Sewanee 
finished third. But Coach John 
McPherson noted that the quality 
in the conference is exceptional 
for Division III, and Sewanee was 
not at full strength. 

In other meets, Sewanee has 
done well even against Division I 
and Division II squads. The Tigers 
had two first places, a second, and 
two third places in regular-season, 
multi-team meets. 

Senior Pat Rakes, captain of the 
team, and two sophomores, John 
Beeland and Tom Selden, were 
strong contenders throughout the 
season. Several good freshmen are 
moving up fast. 

Field Hockey 

The Sewanee field hockey team 
posted a 4-3 record this year de- 
spite key injuries and inexperience. 

The high scorer was Cynda 
Cavin, a freshman from Dallas, 
Texas. She had her best perfor- 
mance against Centre College when 
.she scored five goals. 

Sophomore goalie Sara Coke 
led the defense, claiming two 
shutout victories, but was injured 
before the final-season, 3-1 loss 
to Vanderbilt. The Tigers had 
defeated Vandy earlier in the fall.

Sharon Bonner, and two juniors, 
Louisa Walsh and Ellen Russell. 

Laurence Alvarez, the faculty- 
coach, said the team should have an 
excellent season next year with five 
starters returning. 

Women's Cross Country 

The women's cross country team 
completed its season with a sparkling 
fifth-place finish in the regional 
championships in November. 

Cynthia Hinrichs, a sophomore 
from Jacksonville, Florida, led the 
Tigers by finishing 11th. Her time 
of 20:11 over three miles qualified 
her for the national championships 
in Spokane, Washington. 

Nancy Reath, a junior from 
Weens, Virginia, finished 27th in 
the regionals. 

Highlights of the regular season 
were first places in the Centre Invi- 
tational in Danville, Kentucky and 
in an invitational at Southwestern. 

Coach Marian England said 
Sewanee will lose senior Lee Free- 
land for next year, but everyone 
else should be back for an outstand- 
ing season. 

Alumni Affairs 

Key Message 
for Alumni 

The Associated Alumni met on 
homecoming Saturday, October 4 
and heard reports by alumni vice- 
presidents, met W. Brown Patterson, 
new dean of the College, and heard 
a short talk by Vice-Chancellor 
Robert M. Ayres on the state of the 

The Associated Alumni meeting 
is also the occasion for the award- 
ing of Exornati keys, the Dobbins 
Trophy, and class appreciation gifts. 

Mr. Ayres' report was generally 
optimistic, but he noted that Sewa- 
nee is faced with two growing prob- 
lems: inflation and a declining 
number of college-age young people 
from which to draw students. 

He said he believed that "the 
quality of what we are doing here 
and the message we are able to give 
to the world about this place and 
the help alumni can give is going 
to keep this place full." 

He announced a surplus from 
the past fiscal year of $330,000 and 
a reduction in the accumulated 
deficit to the point where the Uni- 
versity is virtually debt free, except 
for some long-term debt. 

Mr. Ayres also expressed excite- 
ment about the approach of a 
capital funds campaign. 

Enrollment in the College is 
1,063 full-time students, of which 
57 percent are men and 43 percent 
women. The Academy enrollment 
is 193, divided equally between 
men and women. 

Of the 80 students in the 
seminary, 89 percent are married. 
The average age is 38, and 15 per- 
cent are women. 

The Vice-Chancellor referred to 
the student body as a "tremendous 
group of young people." He said 
that visiting at faculty homes is 
taking place but with less frequency 
today than in the past because of 
changes in circumstances and the 
natures of students and faculty. 
The strong relationship between the 
students and their teachers, he 
noted, continues uninterrupted. 

Other signs of strength on the 
campus are that two-thirds of the 
College students participate in var- 
sity and intramural athletics. Stu- 
dents also believe in and continue 
to administer the Honor Code. 

Louis Rice, C'50, president of 
the Associated Alumni, presided 
at the meeting and praised the 
work of Vice-Chancellor Ayres. He 
also expressed his appreciation to 
the alumni officers for their help 
and complimented Beeler Brush, 
the alumni director, for a SUCCeSS-

ful homecoming weekend. 

Reports were made by Ed- 
ward W. Hine, C'49, vice-president 
for' admissions, who reviewed a 
successful year in admissions and 
suggested ways for alumni to help 
with recruiting, and Allen M. 
Wallace, C'64, vice-president for 
classes, who reviewed the efforts 
in alumni giving. Mr. Wallace said 
that in 1979-80, 23 percent of the 
alumni gave $382,118 in unrestrict- 
ed funds, short of the goal. The 
goal for the current year is $420,330, 
with 35 percent participation. 

John Janeway, C'64, T'69, vice- 
president for church relations, was 
unable to attend but left word 
that he would mail his report to 
all class agents, Sewanee club 
presidents, and bishops. 

Mr. Brush read a report of 
Jack Stephenson, C'49, vice-presi- 
dent for regions, about increased 
activities among Sewanee clubs 
around the country. 

Walter Bryant, Sewanee athletic 
director, spoke briefly about the 
successful efforts of Sewanee in 
providing a good women's athletic 
program, one that is ahead of the 
national norm. He said that alumni 
wishing to receive the newsletter 
Tigergram, about the Sewanee sports 
program, should send him a card. 

Mr. Rice also announced that 
homecoming next fall will be held 
October 23-24. The Alumni Council 
will meet May 9. 

Dobbins Club 

It was a "bam burner" to the end, 
and the Sewanee Club of Washing- 
ton was coming on like "gang 
busters." But in the end the winner 

for the third consecutive year was 
the Sewanee Club of Atlanta. 

The Dobbins Trophy was pre- 
sented at homecoming to the 
Atlanta Club by the originator of 
the award, E. Ragland Dobbins, 
A'31, C'35. A scholarship will be 
presented to a worthy student in 
the name of the winning club. 

Because they had scored more 
than ten points in the competition, 
the Washington and Chattanooga 
clubs were each awarded certifi- 
cates. Kim Matthews, C'76, accept- 
ed for the Washington Club, and 
Lawson Whitaker, C'72, accepted 
for the Chattanooga Club. 

Other clubs should take note of 
the criteria used in selecting the 
winner. There are six categories for 
judging: Formation of a new club, 

revitalization of an old club, 
organization, Sewanee awards and 
recruitment, career services, and 
social functions. 

The top club in any category 
is awarded five points (doubled 
in the revitalization category), the 
next best four points, and so on 
down to one point. The club obtain- 
ing the most points wins. This 
year Washington was edged out by 
only one point, 22-21. Chattanooga 
got twelve points.

Sewanee's most recent homecoming 
saw the arrival of about twenty- 
five members of the class of 1955. 
As one of that number I have 
pondered the question of why we 
came— some over great distances 
and some for the first time in 
twenty-five years. 

Perhaps a part of the answer lies 
in the fact that we arrived on the 
Mountain in 1951 with little or no 
awareness of the sittings and 
winnowings of this world— and we 
departed four years later with not 
much more. In this sense we were 
not entirely prepared for the next 
quarter-century, because each of us 
during those years, in our peregrin- 
ating pursuit of our own personal 
goals, has surely found somewhat 
more than he bargained for.

Trophy, helped award it this year to the Sewanee Club of Atlanta,

Sewanee alumni director. 

To be sure our lives have been 
blessed in full measure with joy, 
with laughter and with love. Yet we 
have not been spared those encoun- 
ters of a different kind— those 
revelations and discoveries stark 
and unforeseen. We have walked 
amid that aimless crudity and 
banality so rampant in the land; we 
have been overtaken by the ravages 
of human appetite in all its forms; 
we have seen some of our most 
cherished dreams become precisely 
that and nothing more; we have 
watched some of the magic and 
the mystery of life turn sterile and 
mundane; we have learned in a 
painful way something about the 
folly of expectation; and we have 
fallen victim to that peculiar, fore- 
boding kind of frustration and un- 
fulfillment which the writers call 

Perhaps it was because of these 
-things that we felt the need to be 
reminded of the time we spent in 
that unique and hallowed place 
in Tennessee, felt the need to ex- 
amine and touch once more the 
rare gift bestowed upon us there. 
For it was at Sewanee that we were 
given the freedom, given the chance, 
given the encouragement, and given 
the wisdom to comprehend, and 
the good sense to cherish , everything 
in this life which is good, and 
beautiful, and passionate, and true. 

If by coming to Sewanee, and if 
by gathering together however 
briefly, we succeeded in brushing 
some of thedust from that treasure, 
then our journeys were truly worth- 

Then, too, I think our return 
had something to do with friend- 
ships—friendships touched with a 
special meaning because they graced 
an earlier time in our life. And the 
importance of these friendships is 
most beautifully stated in the 
words of Willie Morris— a writer 
who is fast becoming the voice of 
our generation. He said about 

"We are all terribly alone in this 
life, I fear. It is a part of our 
mortality and there is really not 
much we can do about it. The 
awful armor of our isolation is 
pierced only by those fragile 
loyalties of friendship which we 
pray will abide."

Award Honors 

During commencement exercises 
last May, Steve Malonee of Chatta- 
nooga was presented the first 
annual Charles Hammond Memorial 
Award. The award, in the form of 
a silver cup, but without stipend, 
is "for excellence in scholarship and 
best all-around in all fields of 
college activity, including athletics." 

Malonee, who graduated near 
the top of his class, was also an 
outstanding basketball and tennis 
player for the Tigers. 

The award was established by 
Mrs. Mary Hammond Fulton of 
Memphis and her son, Dr. Pren- 
tice Fulton, Jr., C'52, of Chatta- 
nooga as a memorial to Mrs. 
Fulton's brother, Charles B. Ham- 
mond, A'16, C'20. 

Mr. Hammond established an 
excellent record while at the 
Academy and won a scholarship to 
the College after his graduation. 
While at the College, he was presi- 
dent of both his freshman and 
sophomore classes and was vice- 
president of his senior class. He 

was a member of the Honor Com- 
mittee, the Senior Thalian Club, 
and the Senior Ribbon Society, 
and he was a member of Kappa 
Alpha fraternity. 

In athletics, he was a blocking 
back and punter on the football 
team and captained Sewanee's 
Southern Championship track team 
in 1918 and 1919. Largely for his 
achievements in track, he won the 
Porter Cup as outstanding athlete 
of the year in 1919. 

While a student, he made his 
home in Griffin, Georgia, but later 
he moved to California. There he 
entered radio and was for a number 
of years a writer on the staff of the 
National Broadcasting Company 
production department. Later he 
was industrial relations assistant 
with General Telephone Company 
of California and became personnel 
administrator for the company 
before his retirement. His home at 
the time of his death last year was 
in Santa Monica, California. 

of the Union 

by Tony Griswold, C'28 

I entered Sewanee in the fall of 
1926 as a junior, having transferred 
from St. Stephen's College, New 
York (now Bard College). If 1 re- 
member correctly, there were then 
approximately 400 students in- 
cluding the theologs. There were 
possibly 150 cadets at Sewanee 
Military Academy. 

At this time, Major MacKellar, 
known to all of us as ''Major Mac," 
was head of the department of 
speech and was in charge of Thomp- 
son Hall, where his students in the 
Debating Society and members of 
the Purple Masque rehearsed and 
practiced . 

On Saturdays, and occasionally 
on a Tuesday, Major Mac would run 
silent movies. If we wanted to see a 
late release, we had to go Winchester 
or Chattanooga. 

As there were very few cars on 
the Mountain at that time it meant 
a long six -mile hike to Monteagle or 
an even longer one, down the Moun- 
tain to Cowan and then over to 

During my first year at Sewanee, 
Dr. Ben Finney, then Vice-Chancel- 
lor, brought in Harold Flintoff of 
Richmond, Virginia to head a fund- 
raising campaign for the University. 
He remained on the campus and 
eventually became administrator of 
the Emerald-Hodgson Hospital. 

One day I met Mr. Flintoff, 
then better known as "Hank," and 
asked him what he thought about 
using one of the large downstairs 
rooms at Thompson Hall to start 
a sandwich shop. We needed money. 
Hank asked "Uncle Ben" to ap- 
prove a grant of $800, which he did. 

We were off on a new adventure. 

Meanwhile Major Mac had re- 
leased some of his authority at 
Thompson Hall, and we began 
nightly showings of motion pic- 
tures, using the auditorium on the 
second floor. The number of pro- 
jectors in the movie booth was in- 
creased to two, and within a year 
we installed newly developed sound 

When we did this, we had a 
tough decision to make. When 
sound first came out in 1927, there 
were two systems: Fox Movietone 
and Warner Vitaphone. In the 
former the sound was on the film. 
In the latter the sound was on 
records. With Vitaphone, two 

records would be sent with each 
can of film. There was a white dot 
on the record which the projection- 
ist had to synchronize with the 
proper form of film. It had been re- 
ported that in some locations, 
where theatres were built on a 
main thoroughfare, a heavy truck 
could throw the needle on the 
record out of whack, and the 
sound would come either before or 
after the scene appeared on the film. 

Dr. Finney, Mr. Flintoff and 
Major Mac agreed with me it would 
be more logical to install the Fox 
Movietone system. We saved over 
$1,500 on the installation. Within 
a short time the Vitaphone system

was abandoned by all major film 

With this introduction of sound, 
movies began to prosper, and we 
were drawing not only students but 
residents from the nearby towns of 
Monteagle, Tracy City, Cowan, and 
even Winchester. Dr. Finney had 
moved the post office facilities 
from Walsh Hall to Thompson Hall. 
From that time Thompson was 
called the Union. 

Within a short time work began 
on the construction of the theatre, 
an annex to the main building. 
Samples of the stone to be used 
in the construction of the interior 
were sent to the U. S. Gypsum 
Company to determine if the stone 
were sound-absorbent or if it would 
produce echoes arid could not be 
used. The report was returned with 
the terse comment: "It can be 
used." All work was done by Mr. 
Johnson, Dr. Finney's nephew, 
manager of the University Farm, 
and supervisor of all construction 
on the campus. 

The new theatre was opened 
on Christmas Night of 1928. No 
students were in the audience, but 
the house was filled with curious 
local residents. The opening film 
was "Madame X" with Ruth 
Chatterton. It was a gala and very 
successful opening. 

Prior to 1933 Tennessee law 
had decreed that no movies could 
be shown on a Sunday. When that 
law was repealed, there was still 
the question : Would the University 
permit movies on a Sunday? I re- 
quested such permission from Dr. 
Finney. He referred me to Dr. 
George Myers, then acting dean of 
the School of Theology. He referred 
the matter to Bishop Mikell of the 
Atlanta Diocese, also Chancellor of 
the University. When Dr. Myers 
received his answer from the Bishop, 
he came to the Union to see me and 
said the Bishop's answer was a 
simple one: "If it is not wrong on 
Monday, why should it be wrong 
on Sunday?" But there was one 
more obstacle. 

There was a tradition that 
members of the faculty would be 
at home Sunday evenings to greet 
student callers. The problem was 
solved by having movie showings 
at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. but no 
showings in the evening. 

In the new theatre a rear sec- 
tion was reserved at all perfor- 
mances for the black residents of 
the Mountain. In the old audi- 
torium, the right side of the hall 
had been reserved for them on 
Tuesdays and Saturdays at the 
9 p.m. shows only. 

After graduating from the 
college in 1928, I went on to the 
seminary, receiving my B.D. degree 
in 1930. I remained at Sewanee 
until 1942 when I went into 
military service.

Clubs Make 
Sparks Fly 

This has been a good year for the 
Sewanee Club of Charlotte. While 
there is always excellent camaraderie 
between members on an individual 
basis, some of the joint efforts are 
worth mentioning. 

In January a wine and cheese 
party was held at the home of 
Dr. and Mrs. Fred Mitchell, C'48. 
Dr. Mitchell's daughter, Anne, is a 
sophomore in the College. 

In the spring, under Dr. Mitch- 
ell's direction, the Sewanee Club 
Award was presented at eight area 
high schools. President of the club, 
Thomas C. Stevenson III, C'73, 
presented the award to Ned Dehaven 
of Providence Day School. The 
award was accepted in the midst 
of generous applause, not only for 
the recipient but for the spirit, 
dedication, and reputation the 
University commands in the Char- 
lotte community. 

Club recruiting efforts, while 
not formalized, resulted in securing 
several area students to attend 
the University, among them the 
son of the headmaster of Charlotte 
Latin High School. 

In the spring, President Steven- 
son attended the Sewanee Club of 
Columbia's statewide dance and 
cocktail party in Columbia, South 
Carolina and reported plenty of 
good fun to match a strong turnout. 

In August the Board of Direc- 
tors met for the annual meeting 
to discuss the general state of the 
club and to decide on the upcoming 
year's events. 

Those attending were Stuart 
Childs, C'50; Dr. Fred Mitchell; 
Jock Tonissen, C'70; Gilbert Lee, 

C'50; Dr. Jim Brittain, C'67; and 
President Stevenson. The other di- 
rector, Tommy Moon, C'67, had a 
previous engagement 
ball court. 

Plans were made for a mid- 
November dinner and cocktail 
party, and the plans came off 
successfully. Douglas Paschall, asso- 
ciate dean of the College, spoke at 
the gathering November 14 at the 
Myers Park Country Club. 

Middle Georgia 

Four official gatherings were held 
in this organizational year, begin- 
ning with the kick-off meeting at 
the home of Lynn and Mike Cass, 
C'63. William D. Harrison, C'68, 
was elected president, Felder Fred- 
erick, C'61, vice-president, and 
David Linholm, C'56, secretary- 

The active roster of the member- 
ship numbers approximately forty 

people from throughout the Middle 
Georgia area, including Macon, 
Fort Valley, Thomaston, Warner 
Robins, Marshall ville, and Tarvers- 

On November 12, 1979, the 
the racquet club held a reception for prospec- 
tive Sewanee students in the Civic 
Room of the Macon Federal Build- 
ing in downtown Macon. This 
reception was coordinated with a 
recruiting visit by Bebe Vann from 
the admissions office. Additionally, 
the club had Dean Paschall come 
down from Sewanee and speak to 
those attending the reception. 

The club has been successful 
in its recruiting efforts and claims 
at least partial responsibility for the 
fact that three students from 
Macon entered Sewanee as fresh- 
men in the fall of 1980. Though all 
three students have outstanding 
records, two of them received 
awards from the Macon Telegraph 
and News as the top students in 
the entire Middle Georgia area in 
their respective fields— Kelly 

Beverly Grail, C'79, left, and Kim Matthews, C'77, try to keep the 
blood flowing during the Sewanee-Washington and Lee grid battle in

of Washington, B.C. to cheer the Tigers. 

McBride in English and John Evans 
in biology. 

The success of the club's re- 
cruiting efforts is even more evident 
when it is considered that in the 
past five years only two or three 
students from this area have gone 
to Sewanee. 

The club met again in February 
at the home of its president, Billy 
Harrison. At this meeting, the mem- 
bers adopted a set of by-laws and 
had a rousing question-and-answer 
session with Beeler Brush, the 
alumni director. 

The final meeting of the year 
was a summer picnic and outing on 
a bright Sunday afternoon in May 
on Felder Frederick's family farm 
in the Fort VaUey-Marshallville 
area. All of the students Who had 
been accepted at Sewanee werein- ■;', 
vited to attend and bring their 
parents. There was a large turnout 
for fishing, swimming, boating, and 
general relaxation. 

Of particular interest was the 
attendance of the Rev. Don Mitch- 
ell, T'52, and his wife, who are 
both in their mid-eighties, and of 
the Honorable Giles O'Neal, who 
is a city councilman in Macon and 
the father of Kathleen O'Neal, 
currently a student in the College. 

Plans were made for a similar 
itinerary this year, and it is hoped 
recruiting efforts will pay even 
larger dividends. It is also hoped 
the club may within the next year 
or two begin to help solicit con- 
tributions for the University, 
though currently its activities are 
fairly well restricted to recruiting. 


The Sewanee Club of Washington, 
D.C. held its first-ever (make that 
first annual) barbecue, beer, and 
bluegrass party on Friday, August 
15. Periodic bursts of torrential 
rain could not keep 100 of the 
area's Sewanee fans from enjoying 
the hospitality of the Honorable 
and Mrs. Eugene Martin Morris, 
the dry wit of Dean John Webb, 
and the plain fun of getting together 
off the Mountain. 

Judge and Mrs. Morris were 
kind enough to open their Great 
Fails, Virginia home to an assembly 
of University alumni, current and 
newly entering students, and parents 
of both. The crowd gathered in 
honor of Dean Webb's retirement 
this August. Classes of 1936 to 
1984 held their own as people came 
from beyond Baltimore and North- 
ern Virginia to spend an evening 
with the Dean and friends from 
University days. 

The executive committee fur- 
nished willing workers and desserts, 
while the Morris family pitched in 
to provide more food than even 
this Gailor-weaned crew could 
handle. A three-man bluegrass band, 
playing old favorites, inspired a few 
brave souls to brush up on their

clogging, and those who could not " 
buckdance did the jitterbug anyway. 

Dean Webb was the very spirit 
of decorum upon being presented 
with a pipe by Club President Kim 
Matthews and was predictably 
gracious in his thanks. But he 
showed his true colors when he 
admitted to relishing the thought 
of being able to dress as he pleased 
in his newly retired state. He 
grinned, rocked back and forth on 
his heels, and allowed as to how the 
University was going to have him 
back for at least part of the year 
when he begins teaching one or 
two courses in January. 

Memorable glimpses such as 
these, and more, shared by Dean 
Webb served to remind those present 
of the challenge facing a liberal arts 
college these days and of the reality 
that the oDvious success of this 
particular college was both of 
importance and due in part to each 
person there. 

As guests one by one took 
their leave, the ringing echoes of 
our yesterdays gave way to merry 
anticipation of a Saturday afternoon

h Many enthusiastic alumni and 
* friends attended the summer party 
July 26 at Twelve Oaks on Washing- 
ton Square and welcomed some 
distinguished guests. 

Bringing down the latest word 
from the Mountain was Dean 
Douglas Paschall, our special guest 
from Sewanee. Former Ambassador 
Armistead Selden, C'42, who was a 
candidate for the U.S. Senate in 
Alabama's Republican Primary this 
year, also attended. For a summer 
party there was summertime fare^ 
hot dogs, beer, etc. 

The Mobile Club, in an enthusi- 
astic effort to encourage local 
high school students to consider 
the University, organized a bus trip' 
to Sewanee for the weekend of 
November 7-9. The purpose of the 
trip was to give prospective stu- 
dents an opportunity to sample 
first-hand what student life on the 
Mountain is like. Among the club 
members accompanying the group 
were Joel Daves, C'73, and the 
Rev. John M. Barr, Jr., T'51.

A late summer party— a hamburger 

cookout at the Quail Lane Racquet 

Club in Columbia— was a "terrific 

success," rep*brts Ernest Stanley, 

C'71. In addition to a marvelous 

speech from Dean Douglas Paschall, 

the club "finally" made a bit of 

money on a summer party. 

The party was a proper follow- 
up to the March party and dance, 
which drew almost 200 alumni and

planned for 1981 . 

The Sewanee Awards were pre- 
sented this year to students in 
five area high schools. 

A parents' committee was start- 
ed this year to encourage the par- 
ticipation of parents of current 
students. The success of this is not 
what we had hoped for, but we 
believe will get more support from 
parents as time goes on. 

The club's annual meeting will 
be held January 9. 


The annual summer gathering of 
the Houston Club was held August 
9 at the home of Bill Bomar, C'52, 
and his wife, Ramona. After a meal 
of grilled hamburgers, everyone set 
off for the Astrodome and the 
Astros' baseball game. Their seats 
were reserved, and the club was 
given notice in the scoreboard lights. 

The annual Autumn Banquet 
was held October 21 at the Hous- 
ton Country Club. Robert S. Lan- 
caster, former dean of the College, 
was the guest speaker for the evening, 


An autumn party was held Novem-

the Mountain. 


A Founders' Day Cookout was 
organized by the Spartanburg, 
South Carolina Club and held 
October 12. Ted Stirling spoke to 
alumni and spouses about the 
latest state of things on the domain. 
The informal gathering was held at 
a place called Floyd's Cabin. 

Central Florida 

A festive victory party for the 
football squad, coaches, alumni, 
and Sewanee friends was given by 
the club after the Tigers-St. Leo 
College game November 8. 

The dinner party was held at 
the St. Leo College campus boat- 
house and lakefront picnic area. 
Eric Newman, C'70, was the recep- 
tion chairman. 

It is interesting how many of 
Sewanee's current gridders— at least 
a dozen— come from the Central 
Florida area. 


A Founders' Day Dinner was held 
October 30 at the Ansley Golf 
Club. The guests from the Moun- 
tain included Doug Paschall, asso- 
ciate dean; Mary Sue Cushman, 
dean of women, and Walter Bryant, 
athletic director. Dennis Hall, C'69, 
was one of the organizers of the

The club welcomed Dean and Mrs. 
Robert Lancaster to an old fashion- 
ed barbecue October 23. The host 
for the club was Andrew Gay, 
A'37, at St. Louis Plantation on 
the river in Plaquemine, Louisiana. 
Dr. Bob Holloway, C'68, helped 
organize the event, which was a 
grand success. 


The club threw a summer party 
at the American National Bank 
Lakeside Club on Chickamauga 
Lake. The party was a great success, 
with a large number of in-coming 
freshmen, their parents, and current 
students attending, as well as 
alumni and their spouses. The 
meeting helped to build interest 
in homecoming weekend. 

Leonard Pogue, C'80, was one of the former students of Andrew 
Lytle who greeted the author at the Lytle bust dedication in October.

The Rev. J. Willard Yoder, GST'56, continues 
his successful career in the narcotics rehabilita- 
tion program at Discovery House on the grounds 
of Marlboro State Hospital in New Jersey. The 
success of the program is attributed to what Mr, 
Yoder describes as a "supportive environment" 
rather than the use of psychiatric drugs. 

While remaining active in the work of the 
Church, the Rev. Mr. Yoder has taught psychol- 
ogy at William Paterson College and Fairleigh 
Dickenson University. He is listed in Who's Who 
in the East, the Directory of American Scholars, 
and Who's Who in Religion. He has the unique 
distinction of having taught in the School of The- 
ology before receiving his Master of Divinity 
degree from Sewanee.

Brother's Joke 

To the Editor: 

I would like to call to your 
attention an error printed in 
the September 1980 issue of 
the Sewanee News. It was mis- 
takenly reported that Marianne 
Wilkerson (C'78) and I were 
married this past summer. 
This is not true and I would 
appreciate a correction being 
printed in the next issue. 

You will probably be in- 
terested to know that I've 
discovered the source of this 
misinformation to be a prac- 
tical joke-playing fraternity 
brother of mine. 

Other than the puzzled 
looks which were received at 
Homecoming when friends 
learned that the "bride and 
groom" live in Austin, Texas 
and Tulsa, Oklahoma, respec- 
tively, no harm has been done. 
But I would like to have the 
record set straight for the 
benefit of those who feel 
snubbed at not receiving a 
wedding invitation.

The ministry of the Rev. William Muniz, T'79, in the Hispanic communities 
of Dallas, Texas is attracting the attention of many people within and 
without the Church there. 

A recent article about William in the magazine section of the Dallas 
Morning News illustrates how he has become the only voice of hope for 
many Hispanics where the government and other agencies are absent or 
too slow to act on many individual and social problems. 

Of Hispanic descent himself, William is the director of Hispanic 
ministries of the Diocese of Dallas. 

As the article relates: "The Rev. William Muniz spends Monday 
through Saturday on the streets of Mexican- American neighborhoods in 
Dallas and surrounding neighborhoods. Only on Sundays does he celebrate 
a conventional Mass." 

He officiates at the Holy Family Episcopal Church in McKinney, 
which is the only Spanish-speaking Episcopal church in the Dallas area. 

"But his main work takes on a more ecumenical configuration " the 
article continues. "Its external form is a silver Ford Fairmont, kno'wn to 
some who await its arrival as 'the cathedral on wheels.* " 

His work involves everything from family consultations to drug-abuse 
counseling. Those he helps include illegal aliens. 

While he is concerned with the day-to-day physical needs of his 
people, William says his ultimate gift is bringing Christ to others.

degree from the University of 
North Carolina in 1894. While a 
student, he and his professor, 
F. P. Venable, discovered and 
identified calcium carbide and 
developed a formula for producing 
acetylene gas from it. 

The welding and cutting of 
metals with the use of the oxy- 
acetylene torch has become an 
essential part of the construction 
and manufacturing industries. 

In subsequent years, Mr. Kenan 
became active as a chemical and 
mechanical engineering consultant 
and was responsible for the installa- 
tion of several important plants 
for the carbide and acetylene in- 
dustry in the United States, Aus- 
tralia, and Germany. 

Soon after the turn of the 
century, Mr. Kenan joined Henry M. 
Flagler as a consulting and con- 
struction engineer. Mr. Flagler, one 
of the founders of the original 
Standard Oil Company, was en- 
gaged at that time in the develop- 
ment and construction of enterprises 
along the East Coast of Florida. 

Among his other accomplish- 
ments, Mr. Kenan developed Flori- 
da's first power plant. From 1924 
until his death in 1965, he was pres- 
ident and part owner of the Flagler 
System companies, which included 
the Florida East Coast Railway and 
the Florida East Coast Hotel Com- 

Throughout his life, Mr. Kenan 
maintained a close relationship with 
the University of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill. His interest in and 
support of UNC carried on a Kenan 
family tradition of service that 
began in 1735 with the arrival of the 
first Kenan family from Scotland. 

Mr. Kenan's great-grandfather, 
James, became a member of the 
first Board of Trustees in 1790, 
and five members of the family 
have served in a similar capacity; 
Eight of James Kenan's descendants 
became major donors of books, 
scholarships, student loan funds, 
and funds for professorships to 
UNC. William Kenan, Jr.'s own 
contributions to UNC included a 
stadium, support of the university 
press, and publications for the 


Z. Cartter Patten, upon his death in 
1948, left a substantial estate, 
which has continued to accrue over 
the years to Sewanee, making Mr. 
Patten one of the sixteen most sig- 
nificant benefactors the University 
has had. 

This year Sewanee received 
$315,293 from the Patten be- 

This latest portion was a life 
interest left in trust to Mr. Patten's 
daughter, Dorothy Patten, who 
died in 1975. 

Mr. Patten was head of the 
Chattanooga Medicine Company 
and its associated interests for 
many years. He was recognized as 
well for his wide-ranging work as a 
civic leader and philanthropist. 

The University Board of Trus- 
tees passed a resolution in 1948 
expressing sympathy to Dr. and 
Mrs. Alexander Guerry on the 
death of Mr. Patten, who was an 
uncle of Mrs. Guerry. 

The resolution read in part: 

". . .Few men have done more for 
the glory of God and the good of 
men than this able, devout, and 
devoted layman. His influence will 
continue to bless his fellow men." 
The Patten bequest was one of 
18 bequests received this year for a 
total of $898,908. 

Another one of those gifts, 
similar to the bequest of Mr. 
Patten, came to Sewanee from the 
estate of Louis W. and Charlotte 
Niven Alston. This year, upon the 
death of a life tenant, an additional 
installment of almost $100,000 was 
received from one of the estate 

Residents of Morganton, North 
Carolina and Baltimore, Maryland, 
the Alstons were active members 
of the Church, through which they 
discovered Sewanee. No record 
exists of their ever having visited 
the campus. 

The University was also the 
beneficiary of a bequest in the will 
of Louis T. LeMay, C'25, who was 
killed in an automobile accident 
in 1965. Early in his career, Mr. 
LeMay had taught physical educa- 
tion in the Houston, Texas public 
schools and continued his interest 
in athletics even after he entered 

At the time of his death, he 
- was vice-president and treasurer 
of Jones-Cox Mortgage Company 
in Dallas, Texas. His interest in 
his alma mater continued through- 
out his life. 

An additional bequest has pro- 
vided approximately $90,000 for 
the Rewella McGee Scholarship 
Fund. The bequest is from Mrs. 
McGee's estate. 

The fund was established by 
Mrs. McGee in 1943 in memory of 
James W. McGee, Josephine Wheeler 
McGee and Oliver McGee and pro- 
vides scholarship money for a 
worthy student in the College. 
The bequest of Katherine T. 
Chase of Clifton, New Jersey was 
made to the University in honor 
of a living Sewanee alumnus, the 
Rev. Carl E. "Chuck" Nelson, 
T'55. Miss Chase, a communicant 
of Saint Peter's Church in Clifton, 
died in 1979. In her will she left 
the University 244 shares of 
Texaco common stock. 

Of interest also is the bequest 
of Alma S. Hammond, a devoted 
member of the old Saint Paul's 
Church in New Orleans. Her good 
works became known beyond her 
own parish and city. The Univer- 
sity is one of several beneficiaries 
of her estate. 

Other bequests received by the 
University during the fiscal year 
came from the estates of Elizabeth 
Brinkley Currier of Memphis; 
Nettie Fitch of Winter Park, Florida; 
Sophia Home Hyatt of Atlanta; 
William D. Jones of Fayetteville, 
North Carolina; Will S. Keese, Jr. 
of Chattanooga; Leon Lastinger of 
Statesboro, Georgia; Amanda 
Lastinger of Beaufort, North Caro- 
lina; Nancy B. Murphy of Bartow, 
Florida, Julia and Edward H. 
Nation of Orlando, Florida; Anna T. 
Owens of Athens, Georgia; Donnie 
Lula Roper of Winston-Salem, 
North Carolina; Hattie Saussy of 
Savannah, Georgia; Dorothy H. 
Treakle of Savannah, and L. Kemper 
Williams of New Orleans. 

Mr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Osbourne of Dallas, Texas join Vice- 
Chancellor Robert M. Ayres at Founders' Day Convocation this fall. 
During their visit, the Osbournes stated they have included the 
University in their estate plans for a sizeable gift.
